That Was Easy

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

That was easy. Just a whimper of a storm yesterday & last evening--a nice way to ease into winter. Another way is to continue the chill and that happens right into the start of the weekend. We'll start the day with clouds and as we step into the afternoon those clouds will still be there but they will share the sky with the sun at times. Temps reach the low 40s.

More dry weather is on tap for tomorrow (November has been dry....we're about 2.5" below normal) and I think we will see even more sunshine. Despite that sunshine, temps finish the day below normal---reaching the mid 40s. Clouds arrive by tomorrow evening and those clouds will be tied to an arctic front.

That front will blast through here early Friday morning which will keep temps in the mid 30s the entire day! A northwest wind won't help--actually, it will make things worse, creating wind chills in the upper 20s for much of the day.

Looking into the weekend, another front pesters us but it's a warm front and while that warm front will create clouds/flurries on Saturday it will usher in much warmer temps by Sunday & Monday of next week.

Have a great day. ~JR

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.
