Much Better

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Here comes yet another storm into New England later today. This one will not feature snowflakes, only raindrops. Before those raindrops arrive (between 4-5pm) we have a decent late winter day on tap with sunshine giving way to clouds and milder temps than Monday. Most towns will easily reach the low 40s by early afternoon. Perhaps the biggest thing about today is the amount of wind---or lack of. Huge this time of year when outside for any length of time. All in all, a great day  to take the kids sledding, skiing or tubing (before 4pm).

This system zips through here this evening with many towns picking up a quick .5" of rain by midnight. After midnight, skies will clear out and colder air returns. Slick spots are likely after midnight and into the early morning hours on Wednesday. Wednesday will offer more sunshine but seasonably chilly weather as well with afternoon highs in the mid 30s. More of the same for Thursday.

As we head toward the weekend, the active pattern lives up to its name with another storm taking shape in the central part of the country and eventually ends up on the east coast. You know what that means....another storm around these parts by late Saturday & Sunday. At this time, it looks like a sizeable snowstorm---enough to shovel & plow around.

Enjoy your 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.
