Cape Cod & the south coast region got pounded by some localized heavy snow late last night & early this morning (Acushnet & Brewster 9" of snow) while the people of Worcester & Dracut got nada. One of those winters. This storm is quickly departing allowing for some sunshine but also creating some wind. That chilly wind howls for much of the day serving as a reminder that it's still early spring around here (we get it, thanks).

The weekend will offer partly to mostly sunny skies both days but Saturday will still be windy at times making those afternoon temps in the low 40s feel colder.  Sunday is a nice day--by March standards. Partly to mostly sunny skies AND much less wind. That sunshine flexes its muscles as afternoon temps reach the upper 40s (normal high temp is 49).

Early next week another storm will be along the east coast. As of now, most of that storm will pass to the south of New England but a slight shift in the track to the north and we're talking plowable snow again. I do think we will see clouds & even a few flurries (perhaps a coating of snow on the south coast/cape/islands). Plan on a chilly wind too.

Any hope of warm temps?

Sorry to be that guy but until the pattern breaks down, I don't see any long stretches of warmth (stealing a day here/there is possible). As to when that cold pattern breaks down?.....It may linger until Patriots Day.

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.
