Nearing The End Of The Yellow Brick Road

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Dear World,

Boom--Welcome to winter! What a storm yesterday with the rain, snow, wind & coastal flooding. We get to gather our thoughts today & resume our holiday plans with sunshine & dry roads (mainly--some melting will occur). Overall, a nice winter day ahead.

As we roll into the weekend, another storm takes aim on New England. Thankfully, this will not be like its older brother but it will be strong enough to snarl traffic/travel plans late tomorrow afternoon & evening with snow returning to the region. Tomorrow morning will be dry but look for light snow to arrive early Saturday afternoon (12-2pm) and continue well into late Saturday night. The *Special Map* in our maps section details the snowfall potential for the storm.

By Sunday, the storm is looooong gone but winter is just waking up! Blustery & cold conditions will be the rule with temps spending much of the day in the upper 20s--wind chills will be in the teens. That Patriots game will be dry, blustery & cold with kickoff temps in the upper 20s (wind chills in the teens). Go Pats!

The final hours of 2012 will offer dry conditions and seasonably chilly weather--daytime highs on Monday in the mid 30s and evening temps settling into the 20s for First Night festivities.

Here are snowfall reports from the storm:

Have a great weekend!

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.
