Cool Continues For Now

Posted by Chris Lambert

High pressure building in from Canada with cool, dry air has established itself for now.  Combine that with an onshore wind, and temperatures this time of year will struggle to rise despite all the sunshine in place.

It'll be another cool night tonight with temperatures nearing freezing outside the city.  In fact, freeze warnings and frost advisories are posted for southern Bristol, southern Plymouth County and the Cape and Islands.  The reason why they are not posted for the rest of us?  Typically this time of year, we tend to still see frosty nights, and since the growing season hasn't been considered to start yet, no advisories come out when cold air is in place.  If you have put some plants or flowers outside, you'll need to cover them up tonight though. 

Tomorrow temps look like today's... upper 40s coast and low to 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 of wet weather rolls in Tuesday as an area of low pressure passing just to our 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. Winds increase as well, and with an active east to northeast wind, theres no hope of a warm-up Tuesday as the mercury hovers in the mid to upper 40s.

Wednesday and beyond start looking better number-wise with the only chance of rain on Thursday.

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.
