First Friday of February

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Wow---just like that it's February 1st. Winter is flying by and with days like yesterday it makes it go by faster. Today, it's back to reality with seasonably cold conditions. Daytime temps will hover near 33 but a gusty wind will make it feel like 23. That sun will share the sky with clouds for much of the day. Clear & cold weather tonight.

The weekend offers a continuation of cold but not bitter cold---just regular cold. Morning temps each day will be in the teens while afternoon highs reach the low 30s. Perhaps more importantly, much less wind on Saturday & Sunday---huge this time of year. We have sunshine tomorrow but on Sunday there will be a little storm that slides south of New England during the afternoon & evening hours. Once again, not a blockbuster but travel may get affected after 4pm Sunday--especially along the south shore (Rt 3)--and through Sunday evening. Snowfall totals look weak----1-3" with most of the snow confined to the coast.

Looking into next week, still no major snowstorms and no spring previews either as the jet stream will flow out of Canada and into the southeastern United States. That means seasonably cold weather for much of the week!

Best part of February is the amount of daylight we pick up--71 minutes!!

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.
