Pause For Effect

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Fan of bitter cold and monster snowstorms that bury towns? Uh oh, this isn't your blog or weather pattern. Nope, the Old Man (winter) is taking a break from us for this week and even into early next week. We do get these January thaws just about every year but this one is running a bit early (typically we see a thaw form January 20th-26th where temps will run ~10 degrees above normal).

Today will be the coldest of the bunch as temps reach the mid 30s (normal for this time of year) under a mix of sun & clouds. A morning breeze may contribute to your Case of the Mondays. Clear skies tonight with overnight lows into the 20s.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of March-like temperatures will many towns easily reaching the mid 40s with mostly sunny skies. Wednesday, a cool front moves through the clouds & even a few afternoon rain showers but no arctic air. That front is not from the north pole but rather Seattle and that means temps don't take a hit late in the week. In fact, if anything, our temps hold steady & even climb a few more degrees by late week.

Is this the end of winter?!?!----Nope, not by a long shot. Bitter cold & snow will return....just not anytime soon.

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.
