Foggy and Groggy Start

Posted by Chris Lambert

One thing about eating and eating and eating... it's tough to have a lot of energy!  Also, what may be a groggy start for many, is also a foggy start for many as we've have plenty of low level moisture in place to produce that fog, and even freezing fog. 

With temps this morning at, or just below freezing, all those little water droplets hanging just above the ground (the fog) can freeze when they come in contact with your car, grass, sidewalk or driveway, creating a bit of black ice.  Just watch out for a few slippery spots early.

The few icy spots melt away quickly anytime after 9:00AM as the fog lifts, the sun breaks out, and temps warm into the middle 50s.

The 50s won't last long though as a cold front comes crashing in late tonight and early tomorrow morning.  I don't expect much rain from it, other than a passing shower, late overnight and early tomorrow.  The big difference will be the increasing wind and decreasing temperatures as highs near the mid 40s Saturday by midday, then fall into the upper 30s by late afternoon.

Sunday remains cool with temperatures struggling to get out of the 30s.

Tuesday/Wednesday... Still lots of questions on potential storm moving in.  Right now, my forecast has some rain/mix moving in Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday, but the models have struggled latching on to a pattern set-up and whether or not the storms moves into the Northeast, or stays out to sea?  We'll continue to track it and fine tune the forecast as the pattern becomes a lot clearer over the next couple days.

Good luck shopping today!  Also a good weekend to make turkey soup!

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:

*Sunshine

*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon AND.....it's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
