What Spring?

Posted by Chris Lambert

Halfway through the month of March and this is the time to turn the corner and head into Spring right?  Not so fast... Mother Nature has some catching up to do.  Also, we're still waiting on whether the Groundhog has anything to say for himself.

This morning is cold, no way of getting around that.  Temperatures this morning run near 20 degrees, but with the wind, it'll feel more like the single digits.  At least we'll have the sunshine this morning to help warm us up to 40 by this afternoon.  Near 40 is a common theme through the weekend and through next week.

It'll be dry through the weekend, including St. Paddy's Day, which features more sun than clouds and a bit of a breeze.  Highs Sunday near.... you guessed it, 40.

The next storm to track is slated for Monday night and Tuesday.  With enough cold air in place, it'll start as snow for most, quickly going to rain along the immediate coast, and slowly transitioning to mixed precip and then to rain inland.  While it's too early to throw out snow totals, the best chance for at least several inches of snow would best north and west of 495, especially across the higher terrain.  Bottom line, expect a messy commute Tuesday morning, no matter if you get snow, or a cold rain creating big puddles.

Spring arrives at 7:02 Wednesday morning, spring weather however, does not.  Highs are stuck in the upper 30s with a cold northwest wind.

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:


*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'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.
