In A Little While

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Have you noticed how quickly the snow is melting? Testament to the strengthening February sun. And while a small storm will kiss some parts of the Commonwealth with snow overnight, it's not going to delay the meltdown. 40s will rule the roost through Saturday.

Back to that snow 'event' tonight:

Kind of speaks for itself, eh? If you're weary of sweeping/scraping, then let the sun clean it up tomorrow. Most of the accumulation is over before dawn, with the exception of the Cape where it may still be flurrying.

Not a lot of cold behind this system, nor into the 1st half of the weekend. Highs will settle for the mid and upper 40s through Friday, then drop Saturday afternoon as the cold pours in. Sunday's highs will be a bone-chilling 34 or 35 in town. Just enough to crack freezing. (Hey, it's either that or a snowstorm...which will be forming offshore.)

Storms seem to be steering around us in the short term, but I'm not ready to let my guard down just yet. Old Man Winter may still have some tricks up his sleeve.

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.
