Broom At Worst

Posted by Chris Lambert

A few flakes are falling this morning, mainly north and west of Boston, and in some cases, even dropping a dusting of snow.  The snow won't amount to much, and if the steps in front of the house get covered, a broom out to take care of it.  If you're not into sweeping this morning, just wait until midday.  Warm enough temps melt the snow away. 

Most of us south of Route 2 and inside 495, won't even pick up a dusting.  However, a few flakes are still possible.  As temperatures warm to near 40, a passing snow showers turns to a passing light rain shower this afternoon.  About 40% of us get hit, but even if you're in the 40%, most of the day is dry.

A passing rain or snow shower still possible Monday before dry weather prevails Tuesday.  At that point, we turn our eyes to the south for Wed and Thur.  A mid-Atlantic storm cranks up Wednesday and Thursday, but it remains to be seen how much of an impact we'll see.  I'd bet on lots of clouds, an occasional rain or snow shower, and a strong east to northeast wind both days.  Right now, the brunt of the storm looks to slide just south of us, but it's still worth tracking at this point.   At least we'll see an impact of high winds and rough seas along the coast, especially across the Cape/Islands.

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.
