Quiet Again...Better Enjoy it

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Decent little burst of rain last evening & overnight where most towns had .25" to .50" of rainfall and that system is now departing (heads up--some of that leftover water on sidewalks, side streets & parking lots may briefly freeze early this morning). That system is making way for drier, cooler air to return through the day. i do have to point out the wind, it will return today, gusting to 30 mph at times this afternoon.

Tomorrow & Friday are nice winter days offering ample sunshine and much less wind than we will see today. Some great weather on tap for skiing, sledding or tubing with the kids. Get after it.

The reason being, our stormy pattern rolls on and our next storm takes aim on New England for the upcoming weekend. At this time here's what I'm thinking:

*Certainly looks like a plowable snow for much of southern New England (You want a number don't you?----OK----6-12" seems like a good starting point).

*Timeline looks like the first flakes fly around 3pm Saturday---get heavy from 6pm Saturday until 6am Sunday before tapering off around 11am Sunday.

*Coastal flooding could be a concern for the 10am high tide on Sunday morning---the tide heights will not be as high as they were during the blizzard.

More on this storm as we step closer to the weekend! Enjoy your midweek.

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.
