Paying It Forward

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Highs today soared near 60 (!) in some spots thanks to an early jump in the morning:

But then the clouds moved in, and the showers followed. Not all hits, but definitely some mighty pretty sky pics with the virga (rain that falls from the bottom of a cloud creating a streak or curtain of gray) and the puff-ball clouds.

All that slowly melts away tonight as the stars come out. The temperatures will fall back to the 20s and low 30s, then with sunshine tomorrow we're heading back to the upper 50s to near 60!

Tomorrow's weather can't be overstated. Gorgeous, bright, comfortable and dry. If the pollen wasn't going crazy (severe limits now with pollen and mold spores), it'd be perfect. Sunday looks pretty nice too, although the winds will kick up in the afternoon and the sun goes into hiding. There will be a chill (enough to make you grab a coat) BOTH days along the coast/Capes/Islands. That's the ol' onshore wind kicking in. This time of year, it's pretty cold. You've been warned.

If you don't make 60 tomorrow or Sunday, there's always Monday. Still holding out for those low and mid 60s. Drink it in. It will be sharply colder Tuesday and Wednesday.

If you celebrate, have a Happy Easter and enjoy the final days of Passover.

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.
