Easy Like Sunday Morning

Posted by Chris Lambert

A fresh dusting of snow to greet us on this Sunday morning, but clean-up is about as easy as it gets.  Sweep off the steps, perhaps throw a little salt and sand down, and for many of us, that's it for this event.  When I say "many of us", that's pointed toward you folks living west of Boston, west of Rt. 24 south of the city, and west of 93, North of Boston.  

Right along the coast, especially across SE Mass, the Cape and Islands, keep the salt, sand and broom on standby this afternoon and tonight.   As an ocean storm starts cranking up to our east, we'll find our coastline on the outer edges of it's snow.  Factor in a NNE wind that enhances a bit of that moisture, and that'll allow our coast to see patchy light snow.  The steadiest snow tonight falls across the Cape, allowing for 1-3".  At the coast, Cape Ann and the South Shore, another coating to an 1" should do it.

A chilly pattern stays over the next several days, but not much falls from the sky through Thursday, other than a few Wednesday snow showers.  Friday we will watch for a more significant storm to bring in snow/mix/rain.... too early now to pin down details though.

Enjoy your Sunday!

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.
