A Touch Of Snow

Posted by Chris Lambert

In a month that can spawn vicious snowstorms (35th anniversary of the Blizzard of '78 this week), we have a relatively quiet pattern over the next several days, aside from a bit of light snow that falls over the 2nd half of the weekend. 

Early this evening, snow showers are in and out across the Cape and Islands, as well as Buzzards Bay.  For most of us, we're flake free until midnight, but after that, a few flurries and scattered snow showers slide through.  MetroWest, South Shore and North Shore, coatings of snow by tomorrow morning are hit or miss from town to town thanks to the scattered nature of these snow showers.  However, it's more likely that a coating to an inch of snow greet many areas across the Cape and  Islands and Buzzards Bay by early Sunday, thanks to more more moisture there with a southwest wind off the water.

Light snow tomorrow takes a break for many areas mid morning, into the early afternoon, only to see another tick up in snow shower activity mid afternoon into the night.  The steadiest snow once again is across the Cape and Islands with a total of 1-3" falling there.  Coastal Plymouth County from Marshfield on south, back into southern Bristol County, pick up 1-2" totals by early Monday AM, with a general coating to an inch for the rest of us.  The bottom line is, the big ocean storm gets it's act together too late to give us a big snowstorm, but there will occasionally be slippery spots starting tonight, through tomorrow night.

The rest of the week looks uneventful and cool with a few flurries Wednesday, and perhaps a batch of snow,mix and rain on Friday.  Plenty of time to watch that one.

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.
