Not A Good Beach Day

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Unless you're an iceberg, not exactly beach weather the next couple of days. We have some wicked cold air around these parts--in fact, today is likely going to be our coldest day in 2 years as we spend the morning hours in the single numbers and only reach the mid teens by afternoon. That's just the cold. We will also have wind and that wind will drive wind chills down below zero for much of the day. Layers. Layers. Layers. Hey--at least the sun will be all bright & shiny! Bitterly cold once again for tonight with lows between -5 and + 5 in downtown Boston.

For tomorrow.....you can essentially just read that first paragraph over again. Arctic high pressure isn't moving the next 2 days which means the bitter air associate with that high pressure won't move much either so plan on another cold day. Plan on more sunshine too.

By Friday, we focus on a storm that will slide south of New England late in the day. Earlier this week, I thought we would see a lot of snow from this storm but now I think it will pass too far south of us providing only a glancing blow of snowfall. I does look like some light snow will fall Friday afternoon (after 4pm) and night mainly south of the MA Pike. A coating to an inch seems likely with perhaps 1-3" of snow down in Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands Friday Night. Sunshine & cold look to be around for the upcoming weekend.

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.
