Hope Springs Eternal

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. --Red, Shawshank Redemption.

Buried under another 4-8" of snow this morning as yet another storm takes a swipe at new England and delays the arrival of spring. The worst of the storm is behind us with the heavy snow just now shifting offshore and milder air beginning to take hold. We'll still see pockets of precipitation throughout the day but it will be in the form of sleet inland & just plain rain along the coast-south shore. Travel will be poor across the region during the entire day so allow for extra time if venturing out.

Thankfully, the storm is eager to leave so by evening (5pm) those pockets of snow,sleet & rain will shut down and only clouds will stick throughout the night. The storm is a fast mover so that means you'll hear some wind tonight--gusting from the west 15-25mph. Watch for areas of refreeze this evening & tonight.

Sunshine is back tomorrow but seasonal temps are not. Despite that powerful March sun, highs will crawl into the upper 30s---nearly 10 degrees below normal for this time of year! Another close call of a storm with an ocean storm--should be far enough away to spare us any big snow but some scattered snow showers are likely. Sunshine returns by Friday & will stick with us into the upcoming 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.
