Average Is Good

Posted by Chris Lambert

Average high this time of year in Boston in 37 degrees, and we'll be very close to that over the next couple of days.  Mostly sunny skies prevail today and clear skies continue into the first half of tonight.  The second half of tonight features increasing clouds that could produce a flurry or two by daybreak tomorrow. 

I don't expect much snow, but flurries and scattered snow showers could dust the ground in some (not all towns) towns tomorrow morning.  Whatever light coating is there in the morning, melts in the afternoon with highs running several degrees above freezing.  Sunday afternoon is dry, but another round of flurries or snows showers come through late-day or at night, with the next cold front pushing in.

Behind that front, colder air pushes into southern New England, setting up a chilly Monday and cold Monday night.   That'll be all for the cold for a while as temps warm starting Tuesday afternoon, and don't look back until the middle part of the month.

Heading to Ski Country?  Looks good up north.  It's starting off near 30 for many in northern New England this morning, although i expect temps to fall back into the 20s with an increase with this afternoon.  It'll be in the single digits and teens tonight, and warm to the upper 20s on Sunday with clouds and scattered snow showers.   Have fun!

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.
