Like McKayla Maroney with her arms crossed, the forecast models are unimpressed with this weak storm giving us a glancing blow Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.  We'll get a bit of light snow and flurry activity, mostly south of the Pike, but not much accumulation.  Although a few spots in RI and interior Southeast Mass could collect an inch of snow, there shouldn't be too many headaches out there.  Along the coastline of Southeast Mass and through Buzzards Bay, the Cape and the Islands, an onshore component to the wind keeps the temps closer to the surface warm enough for rain drops to mix in.

The main theme as we go through the week will continue to be the colder than average weather pattern settling, and remaining in place into next weekend.  It'll be a dry forecast Wednesday - Friday, with perhaps a few ocean-effect snow showers across the Cape on Friday, and a possible batch of snow or snow showers ahead of a warm front on Saturday.

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:


*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'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.
