Flirting with 50

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Such a nice day yesterday with many towns up near 50 (in May, 50 will be considered a Fail). We will make another run at 50 today as sunshine this morning will go to work. If we had a full day of sunshine we could easily make 50 and even flirt with 60 but some clouds up in Maine this morning are moving south toward us. Those clouds will arrive just after lunchtime and be with us for much of the afternoon. A few sprinkles are even possible from some of those clouds. Decent day though---especially the front half.

Tonight those clouds are with us and after midnight some snow showers are indeed likely out of those clouds. I'm not worried about accumulating snow on roads but grassy surfaces, car tops & decks are likely to see a coating of snow late tonight.

Lingering snow showers are likely on Thursday morning from this "storm" but after 9am look for just mostly cloudy skies for the day. Due to limited sunshine, temps are likely to struggle for much of the day only reaching the mid 40s by afternoon.

As we roll into Friday, that sunshine comes back and so will our shot at seeing 50 degree temps during the afternoon. In fact, we will see similar weather for both Saturday and again on Easter Sunday. Couple of things about the weekend forecast. A) It's sea breeze season so if your plans this weekend are near the ocean, those temps will be much cooler....low to mid 40s and 2) Easter Sunday will see an increase in clouds by afternoon as well as the risk of some rain showers around 5pm. Sunday morning will definitely be bright & dry though.

Enjoy the weather!

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.
