Stuck In A Moment

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I touched on this subject last week, storms that can get stuck in one spot for several days (to be fair, high pressure can also get stuck for several days) during the early spring months.....see where I'm going with this? Yup, yet another day with a bunch of clouds, blustery wind and seasonably cool temperatures. It's the same storm that was here much of last week! It's much much weaker but it will be here one last day.

By tomorrow high pressure finally starts to move the storm out of here----only problem is that high pressure actually pushes more clouds into New England---OMG! Indeed, Tuesday will offer another cloudy day, blustery & chilly conditions. Don't curse that high pressure too much....it helps us out by Wednesday-Thursday.

In that time-frame, a powerful storm will be moving through the mid-Atlantic with heavy snow & rain as well as high winds. Normally, these storm like to take a left turn up the east coast but with that high pressure in northern New England not willing to move, the brunt of that midweek storm will get shoved to the south of us. Yay high pressure. We will see some effects though:

*Coastal wind Wednesday-Thursday. Wind gusts 35-45mph likely

*This wind (combined with the ocean) will hammer our beaches for a couple of days---minor coastal flooding is possible at the high tides on Thursday & again on Friday

*Cloudy skies with scattered rain & snow showers on both Wednesday & again on Thursday. At this time, I'm not worried about any accumulating snow from this storm. Stay tuned though!

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.
