Finally In Our Favor

Posted by Chris Lambert

It seems like in the last couple of months, any storm that's been in the forecast has trended toward the worst case scenario for us here in New England.  Despite the storm that we're tracking for tonight has been on the maps for days,  the good news is, there has been no turn for the worse.  Finally a break!

We won't get off scot-free though as an increasing easterly wind ushers in some low-level moisture off the Atlantic, providing a few scattered showers this evening that turn to snow showers overnight.  The steadiest rain arrives by 8-9PM through Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, eventually transitioning to wet snow there later this evening.  Don't expect much snow though.  From Boston to Worcester, through much of Metrowest, only scattered coatings of snow fall.  Across Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, we may pick up a slushy inch or two, but even there, that's mostly on the grass and car tops.  Looks like most of us can keep the shovels tucked away on this one.   Winds tonight gust 30-40mph along the coast, with localized gusts to 50mph across Nantucket.

The storm in long gone by the morning commute, and with mostly sunny skies Tuesday, temperatures once again jump into the middle 40s.  We'll have a bit of a breeze, but overall, not a bad day.

The rest of the week looks quiet.  Just a spot sprinkle or shower for 20% Wednesday afternoon, a 50% chance of a sprinkle or shower Thursday afternoon, followed by dry weather into the weekend.

The warmest day I have in the forecast is Easter Sunday... highs then reach the mid 50s!

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.
