January, Why So Cold?!

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The post holiday blues may be setting in--happens every year and it's no different this year. I blame the weather---too darn cold. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love winter and snow but days like the next couple are clunkers. You know, or will soon remember, as we have cold conditions all day long and a feisty breeze adding insult to injury.

Temps this morning are running in the lower teens & single numbers and despite a fair amount of sunshine on the way, we'll only see afternoon high temps reach the mid 20s (wind chills in the mid teens). What makes it even worse is while we are plowing through our work & school days a reinforcement of cold, arctic air will surge into New England tonight. Look for overnight lows to go even lower on Thursday morning than where we are this morning with many towns into the single numbers. Thursday itself offers more sunshine but also cold weather from start to finish with most towns only flirting with the mid 20s by afternoon.

The good news with all this cold, arctic air is that it will push the storm track deep into the south for the next several days keeping storminess out of New England right through the upcoming weekend.

Good luck getting back to the grind today!

Peace.

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.
