Even It Out

Posted by Chris Lambert

Temps were all over this place this afternoon.  At one point it was in the upper 30s across the Mass/NH border and in the lower 60s across parts of SE Mass, like New Bedford, who hit 61 degrees!   Obviously, the fog and cold air stuck near the surface was tough to scour out, and for many locations, a southerly breeze never developed.  

We'll track a few showers through the area tonight, mainly from 9:00PM-2:00AM, although a few sprinkles and clouds may linger into daybreak across the eastern part of the state.  With temperatures tonight generally holding in the 40s, there won't any icing issues.

Clouds early tomorrow break apart as skies become mostly sunny and temps run into the lower to middle 50s for all of us.  So temps overall, much more even versus the 20+ degree range we saw today.

Mild weather sticks around Tuesday with highs in the mid 50s to perhaps near 60 if enough sun can hold on. 

I don't see more rain until Wednesday morning, as a cold front sweeps in with showers.  Temps on Wednesday reach the low 50s late morning, then fall back into the low 40s by sunset.  That will set up a chilly night Wednesday night and Thursday.

More rain is possible by the second half of next weekend, and behind that storm, we may start to transition back to a colder pattern during the 2nd week of the month as the cold and warmth battle it out.  Indications are that the 2nd half of the month still could produce more cold than warmth.

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.
