Go Away Cold!

Posted by Chris Lambert

We can chalk this one up as another cold and breezy early Spring day with highs only in the mid 40s, compared to the lower 50s we average this time of year. Fortunately, I do see milder weather in the forecast, it just won't return tonight. With clear skies and a strong breeze, it'll be another cold night across the area with the city of Boston slipping toward the 30 degree mark by daybreak and many of the suburbs back into the mid 20s. Factor in the breeze, and wind chill factors dip into the teens and lower 20s.

The chill in the air tomorrow morning erodes by midday, and by the afternoon, we're in a better position temperature wise. Most of us reach the mid 50s, and despite a breeze that's still active, it won't be quite as strong. The Cape and Islands remain the coolest with temps in the upper 40s.

It'll be a close call for us Friday regarding storm to our southeast. It's close enough to graze us with more clouds and a few showers across Plymouth/Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, but far enough away, that many of us stay dry. At least it'll remain mild too.

The weekend looks good. It's a cool and breezy start Saturday, but a nice finish, and a good looking Sunday ahead.

Looks like dry and mild weather continues Monday too for the home opener. To be honest though, the temperature forecast for the Monday-Wednesday time-frame is tricky next week. This time of year an onshore breeze kicks us from the 60s to the 40s. I think that'll happen by Wednesday, but any earlier switch in the wind direction would take those Monday or Tuesday temperatures down as well.

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.
