Turnaround Time

Posted by Chris Lambert

It's an uneven start this morning with temps northwest of Boston still below freezing and temps south of the city in the lower 50s.  Since temps are running at or below freezing NW of Boston, a winter weather advisory is still in effect until 9AM thanks to some slick spots on the roads and a touch of freezing fog/freezing drizzle. 

The icy start for some won't last long as the milder air finally wins out.  The temps that are in the 50s across SE Mass, overspread most other areas this afternoon.  Highs will range from near 50 in the Merrimack Valley to the upper 50s south of Boston.  Boston itself should hit about 55.

A few showers cross the area tonight... just plain old rain this time.  Lows bottom off in the lower to middle 40s. 

Mild weather continues on Monday and Tuesday with highs well into the 50s, if not near 60 by Tuesday! 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and go Pats!

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.
