Easing Into Winter

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Ready for some snow? Me too! It's not a blockbuster storm, rather, a storm to send you into a Currier & Ives moment or two. The storm will slide out of Pennsylvania and just south of New England today.  Plan on patches of light snow & flurries later this morning and lasting through the overnight hours. As the storm makes its closest pass to us this evening there is likely to be a steadier burst of snow after 7pm & lasting up until 4am Wednesday morning. The best chance for the *burst* of snow will be from Boston to Attleboro down to New Bedford and back to Hull. The snowfall forecast map shows where the snow burst is likely to occur tonight:

For most it's a coating to an inch event but you folks in Bristol & western Plymouth counties you may need to do some shoveling and plows may be out late tonight & early tomorrow morning.

 

The little storm that could (and will) leaves quickly tomorrow morning allowing some sunshine to return by afternoon. Despite the afternoon sunshine, temps will struggle to reach the low 40s--another day of below normal temps. In fact, temps stay below normal for the remainder of the week with afternoon temps staying in the 30s on Friday! #Brrr

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.
