Leftovers Are Done

Posted by Chris Lambert

Completely finish the leftover Thanksgiving dinner yet?  Well, whether you're food is gone or not, our leftover Thanksgiving sunshine fades away not long after sunrise tomorrow, foreshadowing a few flakes that will arrive.

It won't be a whopper by any stretch, but perhaps enough of a flurry to get you in the Holiday mood.  I expect some light snow and flurries to break out after 10:00 AM tomorrow, and be on and off into the afternoon.  There may be a batch of steadier light snow in interior Plymouth County and the northern 2/3rds of Bristol County that drops a coating to an 1" of snow, but don't expect a big storm.  Along the Plymouth County coast, Cape and Islands, the air is too mild to support all snow, so well get some rain drops to mix in as well.

Sorry snow lovers, that's all I got!  With temps running in the mid to upper 30s, a little salt and sand on the road should do the trick to keep roads ice free, although, after sunset, there will likely be a few slick spots as temps slide back under the freezing mark.

One thing we'll have to watch for tomorrow evening is as this storm streghtens well offshore, it could linger some snow across SE Mass, allowing for additional light accumulations and slippery spots.

Behind this system, we're colder than average though the end of the week, but could indeed near 50 by the second half of the weekend.

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.
