Snowbanks & Puddles

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

No new snow, sleet or eve rain today. Yay. The next two days offer some quiet weather as well as mild weather with temps today and again on Wednesday reaching the low & mid 40s. Shrinking snowbanks & growing puddles. The only knock on today is that dang wind as many towns will have gusty conditions for much of the day, robbing that warm feel to the air. All in all, decent winter day in store. Tomorrow is similar but less wind.

We have another storm heading up the east coast late Wednesday night & early Thursday morning. It will not be a blizzard and if you live north of the MA Pike you can actually skip ahead a paragraph. The storm will scoot south of New England making its closest pass in the early morning hours of Thursday. Snow will fall lightly from metro Boston out toward Worcester (as well as points south) very early Thursday morning. The snow will be a little steadier toward Buzzards Bay-Cape-Islands for the storm. It's also a quick moving storm so look for the last flakes to fly by 9am Thursday morning. In terms of accumulations, coating-2" along & south of MA Pike and 2-4" toward the canal with a little more likely out on Cape Cod. The *special* map in our maps section has greater detail.

Quiet weather resumes from midday Thursday into the start of the weekend. There is a renewed risk of another snowstorm late in the weekend. As of now the storm looks to stay just offshore to bother us but the storm will form, it's just a matter of just how close to the coast. We'll have a much better handle on that by Thursday.

Ciao for now

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.
