Everyone Knows It's Windy

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

A classic tune by The Association and also the title of this blog. Some fierce wind out there early this morning.

Here's a sampling of some of the wind gusts from very early Thursday morning---enough to wake me up! As we step through the day the wind will still be with us---and still a bit of an issue for the morning hours, occasionally gusting to 45mph. By afternoon, the numbers will come down a little but you'll still notice the wind. That wind won;t completely fade away until 4-5pm. The reason for the wind is a storm leaving behind a big bag of dry air, so look for mostly sunny skies through the day and temps will still be above normal for this time of year--mid 40s.

Looking into the next few days, not much new to report on as our January Thaw  will roll through the weekend keeping daytime highs in the 40s & low 50s with overnight lows in the 30s. The mild weather comes with a price---clouds. Both weekend days offer a lot of clouds but it will stay dry despite those clouds.

Missing winter?!?......no worries, colder weather is set to return next week and that may involve a messy storm next Tuesday-Wednesday.

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.
