Just Lovely

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Decent little snowstorm for the Cape/Islands last night with many towns picking up between 2-4" of snow. Once you step off the Cape, the totals really come down fast with a coating in Plymouth-Taunton to nothing at all from Stow to Boston & points north. This storm is a fast mover--already out by the Georges Bank and this means a lovely winter day in store with partly to mostly sunny skies. Temps will reach the mid 40s with little to no wind.

We get to hold onto the mild weather this evening & overnight thanks to a batch of clouds sliding into New England. If tonight is date night, plan on temps starting near 40 then settling into the low 30s by midnight. Dry weather is expected despite all the clouds.

Friday will start with that same batch of clouds but sunshine will find holes in those clouds to allow for at least a partly sunny sky. Even with partial sunshine, temps make a nice run well up into the 40s by afternoon. Melting more of #Nemo's snow--in fact, since Monday morning most towns have already lost over half of the snow from the storm---a testament to that strengthening February sun.

As we work into the weekend, an arctic front will blast into New England during the day. This will result in a snowy Saturday for all of southern New England. It won't be a blizzard but plan on snow from about 7am Saturday until 3pm. In terms of snowfall potential, many towns will pick up 2-3" of snow by 3pm Saturday.  We can handle that. Blustery & cold weather for 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:

*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.
