Catching Up

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Can't lie---I love snow, I love snowstorms but picking up half of your winters snowfall in 2 days is a little crazy. I don't think it's over either as our jet stream that delivered the Blizzard will remain *hyper active* the next 2-3 weeks. I'm not saying we're getting another blizzard but I do think we'll be doing more shoveling before St. Patrick's Day.

The next storm on the docket will offer a burst of snow before changing to rain (freezing rain well inland). Most towns will pick up a quick 1" of snow and even some towns near 2" of snow. Looks like only a coating of snow for the city of Boston & south along the immediate south shore (Rt 3 & east). As we step into the afternoon, just light rain for most of us & some leftover freezing rain well inland as temps climb into the low 30s. It's a fast moving storm and will be exiting early this evening. Rainfall totals will finish between .30" by the end of the storm. Not overly concerned about roof collapses, rather clogged storm drains which will lead to some large puddles/partially flooded roadways across the region. Allow extra travel wherever you're going today.

As we step toward tomorrow & Wednesday, drier air moves in as well as seasonably mild weather with temps tomorrow near 45 and highs on Wednesday in the low 40s. More snow is likely on Thursday. More on this later today on TV.

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.
