Moving Forward

Posted by Pete Bouchard

It's been a dizzying 24+ hrs. The range of emotion has gone from shock and sympathy to outrage and anger. While the city remains on edge, the inhabitants are more firm and resolved than ever. We grieve our losses and we commend the 1st responders. Many more would have perished if not for their quick action. May the hand of justice be just as swift in the coming days. It would go a long way in putting our minds at ease.

In the meantime, the weather rolls on: oblivious and indifferent. Showers moving through this evening will turn to clouds and sprinkles for the rest of the night. Nothing big in terms of wet weather. Just enough to dampen the pavement in many spots.

Another mild day is in store tomorrow as the winds turn in from the northwest and the sun scatters away the morning clouds. The only caveat is the sea breeze may return in the afternoon and cool us down along the coast. Nonetheless, we should make the mid 60s (at least) before that happens.

Thursday's a cooler day, then the warm weather makes one more stand before the weekend.

Be well.

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.
