Recovery Fail

Posted by Chris Lambert

Cold air settles into New England today as high temps struggle to get out of the 20s.  We've even had snow this morning across the Cape, with many towns picking up 1-3", although closer to 4" on Nantucket.  With the exception of the outer Cape experiencing ocean effect snow showers through the rest of this morning, most of us see returning sun.  That sun doesn't help us out too much in the temp department as highs struggle to clear the 20s.

We'll warm up for the weekend, but the warm-up is brief as temps start crashing back down Sunday night.  If you're heading to Gillette, there will be quite a spread of temperatures throughout the day.  Near 40 in the early afternoon, near 30 at kickoff and in the 20s by the end of the game.  Factor in the breeze, and wind chill factors head to the teens.

That's just the tip of the iceberg as we go freezer cold by mid-week.  Temps start near zero Wednesday morning, and stay in the teens during the afternoon.   The cold has some staying power next week, lasting at least Monday-Thursday... making this brief weekend recovery temperature-wise see like a failed attempt at a warmer pattern.  We'll take the nicer weather on the weekend though! 

Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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:


*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'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.
