Second Round

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Did yesterday's big snowstorm out in Worcester county have you feeling a little empty? Want to get into the action? Maybe get your fair share of white?

Fine, we'll oblige.

The next storm up isn't like yesterdays. Not a nor'easter, not a 2-3" rain maker either. Instead, we have light snow event that becomes a little fiesty tomorrow evening across Southeast Mass. At play: cold air (just enough for snow, but not enough for a huge fluffy-factor), a storm track just south of Long Island, the Vineyard and Nantucket and a coastal front.

A coastal what?

A coastal front. A boundary between near 40 on Cape Cod and the 20s in Worcester. That is an added feature that will juice up the storm and essentially make it snow harder between 8pm and midnight.

So, without further's the timeline:

Startup 11am-1pm. As snow for most, but rain Taunton, New Bedford, Middleboro, Cape Cod.

Rain turns to snow in above mentioned areas, but stays as rain east of Rt. 3 (Plymouth to Scituate-like).

Snow becomes heavy south of Brockton, Foxboro and all  way to Canal by 8pm to midnight. Light snow elsewhere.

Change to snow late on Cape Cod, then exits after midnight.


Cold to follow for Pats game. Keep it real....

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.
