What's A Little More Snow?!

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

That's correct, more snow heading this way. It's a tiny storm but many of you will see some patches of light snow & flurries by late morning as well as the afternoon. It's also a slow moving storm so we can hold onto the threat of flurries & snow showers overnight. forecasting snow amounts in these storms can be very tricky because it's like forecasting thunderstorms in the summer. We know the atmosphere can produce the thunderstorms---but knowing exactly where and how often those thunderstorms form is just not possible. the same will occur with the snow showers later today & tonight. If you check out the *special*map in our maps section you will see a snowfall forecast map for this evening & tonight. That's not intended to be treated like gospel but rather the idea of the randomness of the snowfall. For example, Lakeville may get 4" of snow by Friday morning while Wareham only receives a coating.

In any event, this storm will pull out of New England by early tomorrow morning and allow sunshine to go to work melting most if not all of the snow we get tonight. High temps tomorrow will reach the low 40s. The weekend offers similar weather---continued cold as temps stay pinned in the low to mid 40s but at least that sun will shine.

Enjoy your Thursday!

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.
