The Cold Will Hold

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Cold air is like me....stubborn at times.  This is never more true than today (I'm talking cold, not my 'tude) as our temps start the day in the 20s and spend the entire day crawling into the low 30s by 4-5pm. This process often results in clouds, drizzle & even fog---no different this time either so you can bag the sunglasses. As we work into the evening & overnight hours, our temps will hold in the low 30s and slowly start climbing into the upper 30s (low 40s on the south shore/cape islands). Once again, this warming process will encourage clouds & fog to linger for much of the night.

Wednesday is interesting as most towns will see their temperatures reach the mid 50s by afternoon!! Keep in mind it was just last Wednesday that daytime temps were stuck in the teens. I'd like to say the sun will shine & birds will sing but that won't be the case as clouds are with us again and we will have a screaming south wind between 20-30mph. Eventually downpours fall out of those clouds tomorrow evening & night.

Those downpours are tied to a cold front that will blast through here early Thursday morning crushing any hopes of holding onto the 50s for two straight days. High temps on Thursday will occur before lunchtime (40s), then fall into the 30s by afternoon. Dry & seasonably cold weather takes over for Friday & Saturday.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

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.
