Cool & Dry For Now

Posted by Chris Lambert

A westerly breeze brought in the cooler weather today, but it also helped bring in the drier weather we had from late morning, through the afternoon.  Skies gradually clear tonight with temperatures dropping below freezing in many communities, including areas close to Buzzards Bay and the Cape.  If you're off to an early start with the Spring flowers or plants, tonight and tomorrow night are good nights to cover them up and protect them. 

Sunny skies beat out the clouds tomorrow, and for baseball at the Fens, then weather works out just fine.  The heavier Sox sweatshirt is needed though.  Game time temps for the 1:35PM start is 49, Game 2 at 7PM starts at 44 degrees.   

Monday turns out to be similar to Sunday, although more clouds start filling in by day's end.

Tuesday is a close call with an evolving, slow moving, coastal low just to our south and southeast.  I think it gets close enough to drag in some rain with a chilly northeast wind.

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.
