At Least We Need It

Posted by Chris Lambert

A little taste of late May yesterday felt nice with sunshine and temps running into the 70s after starting the morning off with rain.  We started this morning off with rain as well, but this time, no blue skies and 70+ weather this afternoon.

More clouds than sun prevail through the day, occasionally a sprinkle, but many dry hours as well.   Highs this afternoon range from the mid 50s at the coast, to lower 60s through Metrowest to mid 60s across southern Worcester County and Bristol County. 

Just like the past couple of nights, I expect another batch of showers to work in.  This time, it's earlier in the night, and not later.  That means if you're heading to the Sox game, I'd have rain gear on standby with heavier showers possible by the middle to later innings.

Temps fall into the 40s tonight, and hold in the 40s tomorrow.  The cool weather is thanks to an east wind that'll hold those afternoon numbers down in the 45-49 degree range.  At times we'll catch a sprinkle or a patch of drizzle, but the main rain event holds off until Friday.

It's not the weather you want to hear about for Friday, but we could use the rain across the area.  Unfortunately, that rain comes with a chilly air mass.  Temps of Friday start in the mid to upper 30s in the morning, with rain and even sleet mixed in across northern Mass and southern NH.  Ski County gets sleet and snow with this one.  Rain picks up for us by midday and continues into the evening.  Temps run in the 40s during the afternoon, and could near 50 in the early evening if winds turn more south.  Either way, we'll pick up about an inch of beneficial rain.   

Good news for the weekend!  Sun returns and so do temps in the 50s to near 60 on Saturday and mid 50s Sunday.

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.
