Stepping Down

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

We are taking steps back to winter---better than a slide! Yesterday we had temps in the low 60s whereas today we will only reach the low 40s for afternoon highs (normal high is 35). You will have some sun but look for a lot of clouds throughout the day. These clouds are tied to a front--the front that shoved our April-like temps out of here overnight. That front isn't done with us just yet.

The front will act like a highway for any storm that would just so happen to form----oh and look--a storm is forming this morning North Carolina and that storm will travel along this front today and up into New England during the day tomorrow. It won't be a big, bad storm that gets a name or anything like that but it will create some issues for us.

*Light snow & rain arrives ~4am Wednesday and lingers until 4pm.

*Most of the snow is west of Interstate 95---little if any snow is expected within a mile or 2 of the ocean (mostly rain in those locations).

*Travel will be snarled at times throughout the day---but the snow won't fall faster than the plows can plow it--good!

*We do have a map that details the snowfall potential (It's the *Special* Map in that section).

In any event, drier and colder weather returns for the remainder of the week.

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.
