Up and Down We Go

Posted by Chris Lambert

What a weekend!  The nice weather timed out perfectly for us, but now we have rain to track tonight.

Showers start overspreading the area between 7-8PM and despite being a very quiet weekend, it'll be an active overnight.  There will be several hours (mainly from 10PM-2AM), when rain is locally heavy and thunder and lightning are a possibility.  Along with the rain will come strong winds, and a couple hours either side of midnight, winds could gust past 40mph across SE Mass, especially along the coastline.  The rain and wind are quick to taper off after 2-3AM, and that means a dry morning commute.

Monday starts off dry and mild with a strong breeze.  Any sun loses out to clouds by the afternoon as more scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm come rumbling on in.  That rain is along a cold front that'll drop temperatures dramatically by sunset.  Before we see that drop off, temps close in on the mid 50s late morning in Worcester County and near 60 in Boston by early afternoon.

The blast of much cooler air that moves in Monday night sticks around until Thursday morning.  This stretch features temps in the 20s at night, and day time highs Tuesday and Wednesday only in the low to mid 40s.

Thursday may be a similar day to today with morning lows in the mid 20s and afternoon highs jumping up to near 60!

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.
