Groundhog Day

Posted by Chris Lambert

"Did you want to talk about the weather, or were you just making chit chat?"   Sorry.... had to do it on this Groundhog day, trying to channel my best Phil Connors.

Whether our furry friend sees his shadow or not, we have some winter weather to deal with over the next 7-days, mainly in the form of cold weather.  We'll throw in a few chances of snow, but no back-breaking shoveling.

The first bout of snow works in after midnight tonight as light WSW winds produce some ocean enhanced/effect snow near Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands.  The rest of us just see spotty flurries and snow showers.  Tomorrow morning is mainly dry, but as an ocean storm to our south gathers steam, we'll have a decent shot of some light snow redeveloping.  Most locations by tomorrow evening pick up a coating to and inch, but a few spots near the coast, especially south of Boston, could pick up a couple inches.  If it doesn't sound like a big storm, it's because it isn't.   Easy cleanup on this one as the storm strengthens too late to bring us a heavy dose of snow.  For Downeast Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, it could be a different story.

The cold weather continues next week, not record breaking, but several degrees below the average.  A few snow showers slide in Wednesday, and perhaps a batch of light to moderate snow on Friday, but still, no Nor'easters to contend with, so many shovels remain in resting position much of the week.

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:


*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'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.
