Feeling Rushed?

Posted by Chris Lambert

As nice as it is to kick back, relax, hang out with friends and family over Thanksgiving weekend, it doesn't take long to feel the Christmas crunch with all the holiday shopping, parties and everything else that needs to get done before the December holidays.  Not only will the super sales try to rush you into thinking late December, Mother Nature is also rushing in late December.

Temperatures the last week in November average around 48 degrees, which, we won't average anywhere close to that the next 7days.  In fact, my average high temperature for the Tuesday-Saturday time frame is 39, which is the average high temperatures for....  you guessed it!  December 25th.

Not only are we dealing with colder weather, but we may have to deal with a bit of snow.  It doesn't look like a blockbuster storm here, but by Tuesday afternoon and into Tuesday night, some light snow may break out, with a bit of rain mixed in along the coast of SE Mass/Cape/Islands.  The best chance to see the ground turn white is along and south of the Mass Pike, and it's not out of the question that portions of interior SE Mass, RI and CT pick up to a few inches of snow.  A couple models hint at a stronger storm, a bit farther north, and a few even suggest almost all the precip is sent south of us.  It's still somewhat of a complicated pattern, and we'll tweak the forecast as needed as more information comes in. 

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Yeh, it's cold and windy, but at least it's dry.  Monday will be nice and dry as well.

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.
