Bitter Blast

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

It's not unusual (Tom Jones?) to get a wicked cold day like yesterday during the winter but when you start to stack them up back to back, then it does become unusual. Today is bitterly cold once again with temperatures only reaching the upper teens but those wind chill temperatures will stay below zero for just about the entire day. Hey, at least that sun will shine. Clear & very cold tonight with lows once again down near zero (and below).

Friday offers some milder  weather with afternoon temps reaching the lower 20s during the afternoon. The reason for the milder air is a storm that will slide south of New England late in the day & evening. I don't think this storm will do much in terms of snowfall---it's just too far away. There will be some patchy light snow & flurries arriving around 7pm & continuing overnight but most towns along the MA Pike & south shore see only a coating to an inch (Flurries north of the Pike). Closer to Buzzards Bay & Cape Cod you will find some steadier snow tomorrow night & 2-3" is likely down that way.

In any event, the weekend sees the bitter grip relax just a bit with afternoon temps both Saturday & Sunday reaching the upper 20s. Sunshine is around at times on Saturday and is all over the place on Sunday. Saturday may offer more wind than Sunday.

Looking into next week, our pattern flips back to a warmer & stormier pattern as rain  & 40 degree weather may be heading this way.

Stay warm (and classy).

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.
