Taking A Step Back

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

We'll be taking a couple of steps back today. We touched upon it yesterday that we often get these stretches of warm weather only to have a setback. You'll feel that "setback" the entire day with temps staying in the 30s and wind chill temps hovering around 30 during the afternoon. That sun will shine for much of the day but during the afternoon hours we'll even lose that at times. Clear & cold again tonight with lows back into the 20s. Wednesday will offer more sunshine but also continued cold with afternoon high temps below normal once again--only reaching the low 40s. Less wind should at least make it tolerable to be outside.

Thursday is when we start taking steps forward again as temperatures make a great recovery from a chilly start (20s) by reaching the low 50s by afternoon (in fact, after tomorrow, I think we'll be done with those 30 degree afternoons until late next fall). Friday will be our only storm threat over the next seven days. A storm will move northeast from coastal North Carolina but the same wind that is delivering today's chilly air from Canada should also carry that storm far enough offshore to spare us any heavy rain/wind. Clouds & a few showers are possible late Friday afternoon-evening (especially across southeast MA). After this storm threat, sunshine will dominate for much of the upcoming weekend.

Heads up--if you are doing yard work that involves burning the threat for brush fires will be very high the next several days.

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.
