The Good, Bad & The Ugly

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Enough of that dang wind. Too much wind even though temps reached 50 yesterday! Good news....not much wind next few days. Bad news......absolutely no shot of 50 degree weather at anytime this week. This will be a rough week on us as bitterly cold air and two shots of plowable snow on the way.

Today is a decent winter day with sun followed by clouds throughout the afternoon. Even though temps will be seasonably cold (afternoon highs 25-30) there won't be hardly any wind. Good day for taking the kids skiing! Those clouds continue to gather and will even toss a few flurries along the coastline early this evening.

As the evening grows late, the flurries will become a steady snow for much of the night. Unlike many of our winter storms, this latest storm will do most of its dirty work (in terms of snowfall) along the coastline. This map shows the snow potential for late tonight-midday Tuesday:

Needless to say, the morning commute on Tuesday will be rough. Adding to the fun will be arctic air arriving during the afternoon sending morning temps in the 20s into the teens by late day.

Some wicked cold air is in here for all day Wednesday & again on Thursday. Lows each of those mornings near zero and afternoon highs only in the teens. It will warm up on Friday but that warmer air is tied to a storm. That storm looks to bring another batch of snow--perhaps more widespread and heavier. Winter being winter.

JR, you didn't mention "the ugly"

Oh right-----Patriots second half last night. Plenty ugly.

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.
