The First Of Many

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Our annual January Thaw is upon us for the next several days. For this thaw to occur, we need help from that jet stream. 

 

That map shows where the jet stream is, barely on that map!! Haha, it's up in Canada until the middle of next week and that means temps will feel more like March, than January.

Today is day one of the thaw so look for afternoon temps to reach the mid 40s under mostly sunny skies. The only knock on today will be a southwest breeze gusting from 7-17mph. Still a great winter day though. Skies are clear tonight with temps back into the 20s--watch for areas of refreeze.

Wednesday offers more mild weather but also more clouds that are tied to a cool front. I chose cool rather than cold or arctic front because after this front slips through here tomorrow evening the temperatures on Thursday will still reach the lower 40s--above normal! Windy conditions on Thursday will take points away from the day's weather score.

Heading to Friday we see some unsettled weather as a weak storm pesters us with clouds & showers. Some of those showers will take the form of freezing rain late Friday morning outside of I-495. Sunshine returns by Saturday!

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.
