Fun While It Lasted

Posted by Chris Lambert

No bitter cold, no strong winds, nothing falling from the sky.  Tuesday turned out to be a dandy of a day until 4:00PM, then the rain moved in.  Hope you had the chance to enjoy what little time we had the nicer weather for. 

Temps made it into the middle to upper 40s, so yes, this one's all rain.  The exception to that will be across the Worcester Hills and SW New Hampshire.  That's where some wet snow mixes in close out the storm, but even there, I don't expect much of an issue. 

The rain is a quick hitter with a couple of tenths of an inch around Boston, and northwest.. Up to 0.50" south of the city, especially across southern Plymouth County, southern Bristol County, and the Cape/Islands.  That's where a few rumbles of thunder in heavier rains may be heard.  Rain is generally done by midnight.

Cold and windy for Wednesday and Thursday as winds gust 25-35mph.  Temps run in the low to mid 30s each afternoon, with wind chills around 20. 

Friday looks great. Near 40 with clouds and sun.

Something about a weekend storm?  Yeah, it's still in the forecast, but looks more of a Sunday issue than Saturday.  Confidence is growing that we'll deal with at least a plowable snow (at least a few inches).  Whether it turns out to be a bigger deal remains to be seen.  Also, the exact track will dictate if any rain mixes in at the coast, or across SE Mass.  We'll keep an eye on it, but it's still 5 days out.  Too early to commit to amounts.

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.
