The Cold Gets Colder

Posted by Chris Lambert

With a fresh snow pack, we'll have no trouble keeping the cold air around.  In fact the cold gets colder this week as high pressure to our north refreshes the Canadian air mass in place.  Temps run in the mid 30s the next couple days, then fall back to the 20s for highs by mid-week.

For First Night in Boston, clouds are our friend.  Any clouds we have move in this evening help prevent temperatures from free falling, and that means it's a slow trend down with temps around midnight in Boston at 32.  Factor in the breeze, and it'll feel more like 22 outside.   Yeah, it'll be cool, you'll need to dress warm, but it's a long way away from the arctic air that blasted us the morning of Jan 1st, 2009.  That morning, we hit 6 degrees in Boston and 0 in Worcester. 

Overall, the pattern looks cold, but dry this week with just a few flurries possible by Friday.  Although this week is cold, long range indications are for a warmer pattern over the 2nd week of the New Year.

Have fun tonight everyone!  Stay safe.

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.
