After a cold November it is a little goofy that the first week of December will be a warm week...no worries snow lovers, just taking a break from our cold pattern. Today & tomorrow will the warmest of the next several with afternoon highs expected to reach the low & mid 50s---we're nearly there now with many towns close to 50! There are some clouds out there now but sun does make it a comeback during the day.
Tuesday offers more mild weather but also a fair amount of clouds. Despite more clouds, we will still see temperatures up near 50 throughout the afternoon. Those clouds are out ahead of our next weather player--a cool front that is set to arrive on Wednesday.
Wednesday sees that cool front (notice I said cool and not arctic?) slide through here with some morning rain showers. Behind this system temps will slowly fall back from the low 50s during the morning into the mid 40s by evening. Thursday will be our first day this week with *normal* temps--afternoon highs in the mid 40s. Nothing wrong with being normal. Have a great day!
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).
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.
Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:
*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.
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.
