Too Little, Too Late

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Meteorology. Such an interesting field of work I chose....I digress. The storm that I barked about yesterday still formed, still created this wicked snow showers that  are producing heavy snowfall rates---only, they are about 40-60 miles of where I thought the would be. The result?.......not much in the way of snow this morning. There will be a few snow showers up on Cape Ann as well as Cape Cod (perhaps even 2 or 3 snow showers in the Worcester hills), otherwise a mix of sun & clouds for the day. What will happen is bitter cold air will flood southern New England the next 2 days. This arctic assault arrives during the day on fiesty northwest winds keeping wind chills in the teens for much of the day.

Bitter cold air is expected overnight with many towns away from the ocean near zero and even along the coast--including downtown Boston will see overnight lows between 5-10 above zero. That arctic air is also dry air so get those humidifiers cranking later today & tonight. Mainly clear skies.

Wednesday-Thursday will be all about the bitter cold and not just during the morning commute but also coffee break time, lunchtime as well as after school activities will offer cold cold temps. High temps on Wednesday & Thursday won't see 20!! That sun will shine but only play the role of 'good friend' rather than source of heat.

Friday. Friday offers a shot at some more snow (hahaha--I know what you are thinking). This next storm offers a better chance at seeing a plowable snow by afternoon & evening. More on that possible storm later in the week.

Stay warm.

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.
