Relentless

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I knew this would happen. If you start slow with winter, eventually it catches up with you. That's certainly happening this year as we track yet another snowstorm heading this way. This will  be a pretty straight-forward snowstorm---ie---no stalled nature of the storm, no fire hose of moisture aimed at New England and for coastal residents, and an eventual changeover to rain.

First off, a cold January-like day with sunshine giving way to clouds and high temps only reaching the lower 30s by afternoon. No wind though--huge when it's so cold outside. The dry weather will last into the early evening hours. I think the first flakes will fly between 11pm-1am across the region.

Tuesday will be a stormy day across the region with snow for just about everyone during the morning rush and mix of snow, sleet & rain along the coast by mid morning and just plain rain for the immediate coast by noon. It will stay in the form of all snow for the I-495/ Rt2 region. Our *special* map in the maps section will show just how much for your area. The storm will be with us for the day, not tapering off until mid evening.

Usually, March snowstorms pass through and we get back into the sunshine with 50 degree temps in sight. Not this year. Blocking area of high pressure up in north central Canada keeps us in winter mode here in the northeast for the rest of the week with daytime temps only in the 30s & overnight lows in the teens/20s.

Red Sox open the season 2 weeks from today in New York. Spring is coming one way or another.

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.
