Balance

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Yes, spring is finally here---the entire planet has an equal amount of daylight and for us in the northern hemisphere it will only get brighter. Now we just need to do something about this mid-winter pattern. The pattern happened before....anyone remember just 2 years ago (January 2011)? Yup, all that snow in just 5 weeks. It's happening later this year just later than we would like. Where is the endgame with this pattern?!? Sadly, it's not today, I think we have another 2 weeks before it breaks down. Patience Grasshopper.

Today will be bright with partly sunny skies. That sunshine is getting strong now that we are into spring and will be able to push temps into the low 40s by afternoon. A gusty west wind will add a chill to the air at times though. Partly cloudy skies tonight with lows into the 20s.

Tomorrow is a close call with a developing ocean storm. I think it will be too far away to bother all of us but it will toss some snow showers into coastal southern New England by late afternoon & night. IN fact, a couple of inches of snow quite likely out on the Cape/Islands late tomorrow night. A coating to an inch is possible along the south shore & up into Boston late tomorrow night.

Sunshine returns in small doses on Friday and in much larger doses for this upcoming weekend. A slow warming will occur as well with temps by Sunday reaching the mid 40s---"normal" for this time of year.

Happy Spring!

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.
