Snowing

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Snow! Some winters it's just about daily (2 winters ago) while others it never happens (last year). This year it's been location location location. Coastal cities & towns have seen very little while out in the Worcester area, snowfall has been just about normal. Just about all of us see some snow today---even at the coast.

Here's the thinking on our storm:

*Timing---steadiest snow falls from 5am until 12pm today. This is when the accumulating snow happens. Looks like 1-3" along the coast & 3-5" likely along & west of Interstate 95. After 12pm, look for patches of light snow & light rain.

*Travel---Poor this morning across the entire area. Road conditions will improve through the afternoon. main roads will be wet for the evening commute. Neighborhood streets/ sidewalks/ parking lots will slowly improve during the afternoon.

*Temps/Wind---Not a big storm so little if any wind and temps will hang around 30-35 for much of the day.

That's it! As we step into the evening hours, that sloppy slush will harden up as lows drop into the 20s under a partly cloudy sky.

We are dry & seasonable tomorrow but will watch an ocean storm tomorrow night & Friday morning. I do think the storm will throw snow onto the Cape/Islands & south shore late tomorrow night & Friday morning. It looks like 1-3" Boston to the Canal is possible and perhaps 3-6" out on Cape Cod/Islands. The weather improves during the day on Friday---but the temps don't, cold with highs in the 20s!

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.
