Finishing Stages

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Alright, I guess we can still have powerhouse snowstorms in Boston--it's been 2 years since we had a snowstorm like this. In fact, the 21.8" of snow (as of 9am) puts this storm into the top 10---number 6 to be exact. here is a sampling of other storm:

Worcester 28.0"

Topsfield 20.0"

Belmont 27.0"

Natick 23.0"

Norwood 24.0"

Acushnet 12.5"

Plymouth 11.5"

Just like that it, this storm pushes our seasonal snow totals up near normal---and beyond for Worcester. The storm was also responsible for some incredible wind gusts. Check these out:

Hyannis 84mph

Nantucket 77mph

Barnstable 75mph

Scituate 68mph

Fall River 63mph

Brookline 58mph

Not bad for a storm named after a fish. #Nemo. Moving forward we see this storm slowly pull away during the afternoon taking the final snow band & strong, gusty winds with it. Cold though, as wind chills stay pinned down into the teens for much of the afternoon.

By Sunday, cabin fever will be in full force & the good news is you'll have a great winter day to bust out of those cabins. Brilliant sunshine & no wind for the entire day with afternoon temps in the 30s. An epic day for skiing, sledding or just playing in the backyard with the kiddos.

Monday it's back to work & school and also back to inclement weather as another storm moves in--relax----a weaker storm that starts as some light snow but actually ends as some light rain/freezing drizzle Monday evening. Sunshine is set to return Tuesday.

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.
