Christmas In April?!?!---A weird movie and also our theme lately. Temps once again running in the 50s this morning and will stay warm all day. Unlike Monday when we flirted with 60 during the afternoon, temps this afternoon will actually take a couple of steps back and hang in the low 50s. The reason is a cool front moving through the region right now. This front is producing a few showers but the showers will be long gone by 9am. From mid morning & the rest of the day the sun will shine. A developing breeze will grab your attention at times.
It's back to reality tomorrow with cold all over the place. We'll start Thursday in the mid 20s and crawl through the upper 30s during the afternoon. The sun will shine but he's really only there for moral support.
Friday offers more sunshine early in the day but clouds begin to take over the sky by afternoon. Those clouds will be out ahead of our next weather system--a system that is slow moving and drawn out. (see where I'm about to go??)
This system is ours for the weekend and it will be a warm system. Plan on cloudy skies both weekend days. Saturday offers showers scattered for much of the day and Sunday will see more clouds but little if any rain. Mild each day with afternoon highs near 50.
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.
