Monday Doing Its Thing

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Monday doing its thing..bleh. Clouds..drizzle..rain...mist. I'll say this though---it IS warm. Temps are in the 40s &50s (6am) already and will skyrocket into the upper 50s & mid 60s by afternoon. A storm (the same storm that dumped a foot of snow in MN & WI last night) will swing through here with raindrops & warm temps. In fact, we will hold onto the warmth well into the evening hours so plan on a mild night at Gillette with kickoff temps near 60 and 4th quarter temps still running in the mid 50s. Unfortunately, the chance of showers will be fairly high throughout the entire evening---but just scattered in nature. Whew--that's a busy Monday.

For Tuesday, we will clear out during the morning hours and the warm air also clears out of here as temps start in the upper 40s then fall into the low 40s by afternoon. We are quiet & chilly for Wednesday & Thursday.

Where's the cold & snow?!?!----None this week but there are continued signals from our models that *Greenland Blocking* will commence. Greenland Blocking is a type of jet stream pattern that often produces cold & snowstorms across eastern North America. This new pattern will get under way next weekend and there are signs of a colder & snowier pattern for the northeast over the 2nd half of December.

Happy Trails!

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.
