Messy Mix

Posted by Chris Lambert

A cold, damp day with light snow and light rain mixed in didn't make it the most pleasant day to be out and about.  The theme tonight won't change all that much either with rain and snow, transitioning to mainly snow in the City of Boston.  As winds turn north this evening, cooler air drains in, and that's where temps slide to near freezing and snow starts to stick a bit to the roads and sidewalks. 

I don't expect a lot of snow with this storm, more of a nuisance.  Many locations in Metrowest, Worcester County, Merrimack Valley, North Shore, pick up a coating to a half inch, mostly of grassy surfaces.  Along route 1 from Norwood to Foxoboro to Attleboro, we'll see a bit of a steadier snow the evening, giving us about an inch of snow.  South of there, Brockton to Easton to Bridgewater, I think 1-2" ought to do it, and perhaps locally seeing as much as 2-3" around Taunton, Rehoboth, Lakeville.  For more on this, see the "special map" on our web site.  These totals will be highest on grassy surfaces and car tops, less on the driveways and sidewalks.

A few lingering flurries and snow showers are around tomorrow morning, otherwise clouds and some sun and continued cool. 

Cool weather rules for a few more days, but by the 2nd half of the weekend and early next week, we likely take a run back toward 50!

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.
