Patience Pays Off

Posted by Chris Lambert

Another November day down with temps well below the average.  In fact, the warmest the city of Boston hit all day was 36 degrees.   We have a couple more cold days shaping up, but eventually, I do see warmer weather in the forecast.

Tonight, the clouds clear out and temps fall back into the middle 20s, and with a cold start tomorrow, temps only warm into the lower 40s under a mixture of sun and clouds. 

Before we go up, we do need to go down again as a cold front comes blasting on through early Friday morning, and that means temps Friday afternoon won't make it out of the lower to middle 30s for highs.  At least there will be some sunshine!

That cold front returns as a warm front on Saturday, and as the warm air overruns the cold air in place, it rises, cools and condenses into clouds, and perhaps even a bit of light snow or flurries.  Minor accumulations are possible, and even a bit of freezing drizzle could create slippery spots outside route 128.   Eventually, the warmer air does win out, and flurries turn to sprinkles by the evening. 

Sunday features much warmer weather with highs near 50 and just a passing shower or two late in the day or at night.  Monday through Wednesday... more 50s with the chance of rain and breezy weather by Wednesday afternoon.

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.
