Quiet Is Good

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

While the world around is ever chaotic and hectic the weather pattern remains relatively quiet. Fine by me. As noted yesterday, several fronts (warm & cool) will slide through New England the next few days. Next up is a warm front!

Sometimes these fronts make a lot of noise & kick up the dust when they move through the region and other times--like this afternoon--they move through with very little fanfare. Sunshine will begin to give way to clouds by afternoon in advance of that warm front but it's a dry day. Even though a warm front approaches, the temps are starting off chilly and will need some time before they reach the 57-63 range (coolest temps along the coast).

On Friday, this warm front cruises up into northern New England allowing our temps to start the day & finishing the day warm. Many towns by afternoon will see their bank & car thermometers reach the lower 70s. You'll even feel a little humidity throughout the day. Clouds & some sprinkles are likely for much of the day.

The weekend starts off with clouds & rain tied to a cool front that will quickly jump offshore by noon. After 12pm Saturday the remainder of the weekend is dry. That cool front won;t have much cool air with it on Saturday as temps stay near 60 for much of the day but Sunday offers highs only in the low 50s. Mostly sunny skies will make up for that cool air on 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.
