Change Things Up

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The transition from late winter to early spring is under way....mud everywhere in my house (mostly my fault--always forget to take my shoes off---oopsie), rapidly increasing daylight (we've picked up 71 minutes of daylight since the first of the month) and perhaps most notably to a meteorologist are these big beastly storms that stall right over us. In *winter mode* after a monster storm the weather gets right into the sunshine for a few days (remember right after the blizzard how nice it was?) but in *spring mode*, these huge storms can get stuck and stall here in the northeast and that's what is on tap for us the next few days.

Thankfully, this storm will weaken as it stays put---much like a spinning top slowing down--so no worries about anymore heavy rain or powerful wind gusts. What you will have to worry about is Can I get by today without the rain gear? I'd say to have it on stand-by as there will be all sorts of clouds for the day and the risk of a few scattered showers----some of you get rain and other won't. Temps will reach the mid 40s without any wind----not too bad as we close the books on Meteorological Winter.

The first day of Meteorological Spring will be similar to today---still a storm close by and that means clouds. The storm will be even weaker tomorrow so some sunshine is likely & I think the chance of rain showers will be very low. Ironically, with a little sun around tomorrow our temps will be a smidge cooler with temps near 40. We can hold onto the dry weather in to the upcoming weekend. first time in a month, no storms! Yay.

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:


*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'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.
