The Caboose

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nasty storm out there---reminds me of a storm in southern New England had back in December of 1992. The storm was stuck south of New England which set up a fire hose of moisture into New England, blasting us with snow for several hours. Sound familiar? This too shall pass.

It's not a good morning for travel across New England with bands of moderate to heavy snow marching inland (much like ocean swells approaching a beach). The last of these snow bands--the caboose if you will---will begin to shift south through New England between 1-5pm--first in the Merrimack valley and last down toward the Canal. Final snow totals will finish between 12"-20" of snow by mid afternoon (locally higher amounts likely). Cloudy skies will longer for much of the afternoon & evening. Wind will also be an issue along the coast for a few hours this morning, gusting between 25-45mph. This wind is shoving water to the beaches yet again with another round of coastal flooding & beach erosion. In fact, this evening's high tide will also lead to the likelyhood of moderate coastal flooding along the south shore/ cape around 9pm tonight.

Time to move on. the weekend offers high pressure (it better!) with a return to sunshine for both weekend days and a warming trend. Temps tomorrow reach the mid 40s but on Sunday, we can see most towns away from that chilly ocean reach the low 50s. Even warmer early next week with partly sunny skies on Monday and temps between 55-60!

If you have the day off, enjoy your 3 day weekend!

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.
