Quick Visit From The 70s

Posted by Chris Lambert

An onshore breeze today kept it coolest along the coast, but it was still a pleasant day weather-wise as temperatures made their way into the 50s and 60s.  As winds turn more south tonight, more clouds roll in, and even a spot sprinkle or shower cannot be ruled out.  With the clouds in place temperatures should hold in the lower to middle 50s.

Friday, temperatures take a run toward and above 70 for many towns, Boston included.  The breeze will be active out of the south, gusting at times over 30mph. That also allows the warmer air to pour into southern New England.  The exception to that will be the Cape/Islands and Buzzards Bay where temperatures at best reach the low to mid 60s since south winds are onshore winds there.  Through much of Friday, clouds are more prevalent than sun, and even an isolated shower or sprinkle is scattered about.  Overall, much of the day is dry though.

The better chance for steady rain and more abundant shower activity rolls in Friday night and Saturday morning.  From midnight to 10AM Saturday, that's the highest chance for rain over the next several days. 

The weekend dries out from mid to late morning Saturday and Saturday afternoon looks to be an ok one with highs near 60.  Sunday is much brighter with temperatures back into the 50s.

On a side note:  It's been so great to see the outpouring of support for this great city, both on the national and local levels, and what a great moment at the Garden last night during the National Anthem at the Bruins game.  Growing up here, I know how strong this city is, and I know we'll bounce back stronger than ever... Boston Strong!

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:


*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'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.
