Winter Goes On Spring Break

Posted by Chris Lambert

Mid March tends to bring in plenty of 40s and 50s, and it looks like that's where Mother Nature is heading for now despite the calendar stuck in early to mid January. 

The exception to that will be tomorrow and tomorrow night.  It won't be brutally cold, but after a few scattered morning flurries, perhaps even a rain or snow shower across SE Mass, temps stick in the middle 30s for the afternoon.   Sunshine does return by late morning and continue through the rest of the day, so it'll be a pretty good day overall.   As high pressure settles in overnight, clear skies and light winds allows temps to fall into the teens in the burbs and in the 20s in the city.

Despite a cold start to Tuesday, Tuesday is the turnaround day with highs back into the mid 40s.  Even a few upper 40s pop in Wednesday, although a cold front could spark an isolated shower late-day.

That front is just a glancing blow of cooler air, so Thursday we're back to the low 40s. 

Showers roll in Friday afternoon and Friday night, and exit stage east for the weekend.

Once we lose the rain... it's bring on the 50s with Sunday looking nice and mild for the Pats vs Texans at Gillette with highs in the lower to middle 50s in Foxboro.

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.
