Feel The Sting

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Cold takes hold tonight. The air that's over us has been festering over a thick snowpack across southeast Canada. The long winter night will do the rest:

Don't look for Mother Nature to give much back tomorrow, either. High temperatures will struggle to meet the mid 20s in most spots. With a light breeze around, the best we'll do for the afternoon for a "real-feel" temperature (better known as the wind chill) will be 15 degrees.

I'm not going to tell you to get used to it though. Tomorrow is the coldest, but it is also the last day we'll spend in the arctic air. Friday sees some moderation in the temperatures thanks to a change in wind direction and the arctic air in retreat.

More or less the same for the weekend. I was optimistic about bringing the numbers to 40 or better, but now I've backed off. Yes, the arctic air will peel back, but it's not looking like a temperature run up at this point.

That could change by the middle of next week. Weather maps are painting a MUCH milder scenario for the entire Eastern United States. It'll be hard to hold this one back.

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.
