Bold Cold

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Today is a cold day, no getting around that. The coldest of the winter (so far) as many towns are starting just a few degrees above zero & some towns even south of the goose-egg. That's just temperature---add in a little wind and it feels like it's below zero for many cities & towns! As we step through the day, our temps will struggle to reach the low 20s by afternoon---far below our normal high temps in the upper 30s.

As we move from the afternoon & into the evening, temps get wacky as they actually continue their upward trend from the afternoon. In fact, temperatures by early tomorrow morning will reach the upper 20s! That will set us up for some milder weather for Finally Friday. Temps return to normal on Friday with most towns in the upper 30s, the only issue is that a westerly breeze will mask some of that mild feel to the air.

Looking into the weekend, there are no big storms (no little ones either), no shots of bitterly cold air and no record warmth. In fact, a nice January weekend in store with afternoon highs in the 30s each day and sunny skies on Saturday. Sunday will offer clouds & some early morning flurries. No big deal.

It appears our January Thaw will arrive next week with afternoon highs in the 40s!

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.
