Chaos

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The chaos theory (Butterfly Effect) puts forth the notion that there will never be a computer model that can accurately & precisely predict the weather. I get that. What I struggle with is the chaos that surrounds all of us every day. I don't have answers on that one.

Sunshine is with us for the first part of the day and that sun gets to work fast as temps will soar into the mid & upper 60s by afternoon. Clouds will also be with us through the afternoon as a cool front approaches the region late in the day. That front won't be able to toss raindrops our way until well after dark tonight.

The front is a fast mover and slides out of New England during the day tomorrow so plan on abundant sunshine. This is technically a cool front but there isn't much cool air with this front so temps don't take much of a hit as the numbers will still reach the the low 60s by afternoon. Clouds return on Thursday and those clouds will keep temps in the 50s for much of the afternoon. Our first bout of humidity arrives by Friday.

Be safe and crack a smile if you can.

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.
