A Fling With Spring

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The next 3 days offer some spring-like weather with temps easily reaching the 50s by the afternoon. I'd like to say we've turned the page from winter mode to spring mode but the winter pattern will hold through the rest of March--occasionally offering some mild days here & there. Enjoy them when they appear.

The first is today with many towns reaching the low 50s by afternoon despite a lot of clouds around. No worries about rain out of those clouds, it's a day and at times a breezy day too. Not too shabby for a Monday. Cloudy skies are with us tonight & it stays mild with patchy fog forming as the snow continues to melt.

Tuesday offers even milder temps but also our next storm. It will be rain with those mild temps and I think the first drops arrive around 2-3pm (a bit later in Boston) and that rain lingers well into Tuesday night. It will be a brief shot of heavy rain with many towns picking up an inch of rain. Normally an inch of rain would lead to a yawn from me but with all that snow melting combined with that inch of rain plan on some minor street (and stream)  flooding tomorrow night.

That bag of rain is outta here on Wednesday but the mild temps are not as we flirt with 50 yet again. A breeze will add some chill to the air at times. Colder air will return to New England by Thursday & Friday as temps those days are below normal---30s/40s for afternoon highs.

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.
