A Preview Of Spring

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

A week ago today I blogged about our coldest day of the winter with daytime highs only in the teens. What a difference a week makes as we will chase record highs across the northeast. Many towns are already starting the day at normal *high* temp levels--mid 30s--and we will only go up from here reaching the 50s by afternoon. In fact, our temperatures will be even warmer overnight tonight with many towns between 55-60!

To get all this warm (and fuzzy) air will require some work and that takes place in the form of wind. Not much wind this morning but during the afternoon that wind will really crank between 20-30mph and by tonight expect that wind to gust between 40-50mph--highest in Plymouth/Bristol counties as well as Cape Cod. At those wind gusts (50mph), some wind damage--and power loss is likely tonight. Rain will also be an issue from midnight & beyond with numerous downpours. Most towns will pick up between 1-2" of rain by early Thursday morning.

Thursday starts stormy: Windy & rainy but after 9am, sunshine returns and that wind will settle just a bit. The temps also get an attitude adjustment with the numbers starting near 60 by 7am but then falling into the low 50s by late morning and then into the 40s by afternoon. Seasonably cold weather returns for Friday & the 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.
