Can't Fool Us

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

We've seen this play out before. A few warm days and then--boom, it turns much colder and even snows. April 1st, 1997 anyone? Don't worry, I'm not about to blog on a snowstorm but we do have a large chunk of cold air heading this way. Before that cold air arrives there will be a few hours this morning of mild weather as many of us soar through the 50s and even reach the low 60s early this afternoon. Then the hammer drops.

That *hammer* will take on the form of clouds & showers. The showers threat window looks like 2-5pm---not to say it rains for 3 straight hours everywhere but within that window you are likely to get tagged by at least a few showers (even a brief downpour). Behind the shower threat temps will take a nose-dive into the low 40s by 5-6pm and even lower this evening. Skies will rapidly clear with the arrival of the cold air.

Tomorrow & Wednesday are full of sunshine but also arctic air. Morning temps will be in the lower 20s & despite the powerful April sun, we'll only reach the low 40s both tomorrow & again on Wednesday. Milder weather is set to return by Thursday.

Enjoy the day.

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.
