Everybody Just Calm Down

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I think wind is really the enemy this time of year and that was never more true than yesterday. Wind chills spent much of the day below zero because winds were gusting between 20-30 mph. Today, that wind is a little fiesty (nor sure why, it is Friday) for a few hours this morning but as we step into the afternoon there won't be much wind out there----in fact, winds will be.....calm.  Also, the core of the bitter air is now leaving and by afternoon our temperatures will reach the lower 20s. Lower 20s & little wind will go a long way to making it more tolerable when outside. We will also see some clouds take over the sky as the day grows longer.

These clouds I blog about are tied to a tiny storm that will zip south of New England later today & tonight. It's too far away to mess up date night but it will create some flurries & even patchy light snow from 9pm until 3am (Haha---that's some date if you're still on the roads at 3am!) . You folks on the cape/islands will see some steadier snow tonight and because of this plan on 1-2" of snow by early Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday (and the weekend for that matter) offer a mix of sun & clouds with seasonably cold temps--afternoon highs each day in the mid & upper 20s. Some wind is around each day to make it feel a bit colder.

Looking into next week, our weather stops coming from Yellowknife,Canada and instead Seattle, Washington....translation: warmer weather. We will go through some weather swapping out our climates. Clouds & patchy light snow are likely on Monday afternoon, while rain showers will be with us on Tuesday.

Have a great 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.
