Too Close

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

This will be a close call---a snowstorm passing just south of New England today. We deserve this break---we've had our fair share of snow & storms the past 6 weeks. Even though shovels & plows get a break we will still see clouds from that storm and with time a cold & cranky wind. That is your Monday. Tonight, a few isolated snow showers are likely from Plymouth to Attleboro and places south of that line as the storm makes its closest pass to us. I suppose a coating is possible in some communities overnight (1-2" of snow will be likely on Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket). Wind will also be present along the coast thanks to that storm--gusting from the northeast between 20-30mph.

The reason this particular storm misses us to the south is cold high pressure block still up in Canada. The trade-off of this non-storm is the continuation our chilly pattern for much of the week. Daytime temps will stay in the mid 40s for several days with only a hint of a warm-up by late week & into the upcoming holiday weekend. In terms of storminess, a few sprinkles & rain showers possible on Thursday afternoon, otherwise a dry pattern is setting up shop here in New England.

Enjoy your Monday!

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.
