Cool, But Bright

Posted by Chris Lambert

Bright skies and cool temps start off this Sunday morning, and with winds turning onshore this afternoon, it'll be another cool Spring day ahead.  We keep the sunshine all day as temperatures near 55 inland and hold in the upper 40s at the coast.   Fenway Park nears 50 degrees early this afternoon for first pitch, but falls into the 40s as an east wind kicks in.   By game two this evening, temps will be in the lower to middle 40s.

Clear skies prevail overnight and with a dry airmass in place, temps tumble.  Winds go light and areas outside the city of Boston fall to the freezing mark, if not just below it.  In Boston, we'll  remain in the upper 30s.

Tomorrow temps look like today's... upper 40s coast and mid 50s inland.  We will notice more mid to high level clouds increasing in the afternoon and an east wind increasing to 15+mph.

The next chance for showers rolls in Tuesday as an area of low pressure passing just to east brings in a chilly northeast flow and some rain.  Right now, the heaviest rain stays just offshore, but it's something we'll continue to track.

Enjoy the weekend and Go Sox!

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.
