Consistent

Posted by Chris Lambert

In like a lion, out like a lamb.  That's the March motto.  However, it looks like we'll start off the first several days of the month on the quiet side (lamb-like).  In fact, temperatures are very consistent, hovering in the lower 40s each afternoon.

There will be a stubborn area of low pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere across New England and it'll be slow to move out of New England.  With that said, it's been an area of low pressure that's been losing steam.  It'll be enough to keep more clouds than sun, and an occasional rain or snow shower around Friday and Saturday, but many dry hours are also included each day.  Sunday looks dry with partly sunny skies. 

Bottom line, no major storms through the weekend.  Finally!   Great ski weather too!  Low to mid 30s in Ski Country with an occasional snow shower.  Remember, the last two rain storms here have been all snow up there.

Next week, Monday and Tuesday feature a north wind that goes northeast.  That'll keep some low to mid level moisture in place, enough for mostly cloudy skies, but mainly rain/snow free skies.  Wednesday, northeast winds increase, and a rain or snow shower can't be ruled out.  Overall, it'll be a raw and windy day. 

The wind on Wednesday is generated by the pressure difference of a high to our northeast and an ocean storm to our south.  Right now, that big ocean storm looks to stay out to sea, and our quiet weather should continue into the end of the week.

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.
