The Better Half Ahead

Posted by Chris Lambert

Well, it wasn't the best day that we've had, that's for sure, but some of the mist and drizzle seemed to let up a bit this afternoon, so it was somewhat manageable if you had to be out and about.  Of course, with some many low clouds stuck here, temps were also stuck in place all day.

We'll do better tomorrow as indeed the second half of the weekend is the better half. 

After more low clouds, fog, patchy mist this evening, a front to our west sweeps in overnight, helping to bring drier air in by early tomorrow morning.  In fact, at sunrise, I expect partly sunny skies.  We'll remain partly sunny into the afternoon, although the clouds start to win the battle by late afternoon.  By the evening, showers move back in and turn to a steady rain after midnight, into Monday morning.  

There may be just enough cold air leftover late tomorrow night and early Monday morning to allow for some icy spots north of outer Route 2 and into SW New Hampshire, but most of us just deal with a cold rain.

Temps are slow to warm Monday, but once the front works through, steady rain turns to hit or miss showers and temps take off to the upside in the afternoon into the evening.  How's 60 sound?  Although weather will be mild for you tailgaters heading to watch the big match-up Monday night at Gillette, do be prepare for at least scattered showers. 

Cooler weather prevails Tuesday with perhaps a shower or two at the coast. Brighter skies to follow Wednesday-Friday.

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:


*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'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.
