A Sense Of Normalcy

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

We have a simple message today. Early spring returns to New England for the next several days. That means we will start the day with a chill in the air and then by afternoon our temperatures will reach the low & mid 50s. No rainstorms in sight. See, that was simple!

That big storm that has been anchored up in Canada the past few days is moving away and that has been blocking the spring time air from reaching New England--that ends today as the storm moves farther away allowing our air to modify. The departing Canadian storm also *clears the runway* for a new storm to race toward New England tomorrow. Thankfully, all it will do is toss some clouds into New England late tonight-tomorrow morning as well as a few showers down along the south coast/cape/islands.

As we head into the weekend, high pressure is with us both days offering a healthy dose of sunshine. I do think Saturday will be a little cooler with most towns around 50 for afternoon temps (plan on upper 40s along the coast, Boston included). Daytime temps on Sunday will reach the upper 50s. There are signs that even warmer weather is set to arrive for a short time early next week......just in time for the Sox home opener.

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.
