This Or That??

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Today won't be nearly as bright as yesterday but there won't be any wind today---I think I'll take the clouds over the wind any winter day. Despite the clouds, our high temps will still be respectable for this time of year--reaching 40 by afternoon. These clouds are tied to a warm front that will try to improve upon that 40 over the weekend. This warm front is also creating a few rain showers (currently in NY/PA) and yes, they will end up in our part of the world after 4pm. Showers continue through the evening. Heads up---A few pockets of freezing rain are likely in the Worcester Hills. This map shows where some slick travel is possible this evening:

Nothing heavy, or damaging but there will likely be a few slick spots on untreated surfaces in those purple shaded areas.

Moving onto the weekend, The showers are gone but the clouds will linger for much of the day on Saturday. That will keep temps close to today's numbers---upper 30s/low 40s for afternoon highs. Also, like today, no wind---great outside day for any winter sports activities!

Sunday will be a fun day. Patriots---Golden Globes--and a touch of spring in the air. We will start the day with clouds but some sun works its way through the clouds by afternoon and that sunshine goes to work giving temps a nice bounce by late morning & afternoon. Many towns reach the upper 50s for the afternoon. That includes the Patriots game. Here's the forecast (weather, not score):

Nice! Go Pats!

Anyone see winter?----don't you worry, he's coming back next week and he's bringing some friends.....arctic air & bitter wind. That's next week though...enjoy the day & the weekend!

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.
