Going With The Flow

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Just go with the flow, that's what I hear. The flow of air today will be from the east---from that chilly ocean and that means it will be a struggle to reach the 50s along the coast today. Even inland, our temps will only reach the lower 50s but that sun will shine for much of the day. Jackets & sweaters will serve you well for much of the day & evening.

Tomorrow will be another chilly day and to make matters worse we even lose the sun as a small, quick moving storm takes a swipe at us. That storm tosses most of its raindrops at the fish but plan on a few showers/periods of rain (especially along the coastline) for much of the day. Rainfall amounts will be light with many towns picking up only .10-.25" of rain. Temps take a hit, staying in the 40s for much of the day.

By midweek that sunshine returns and instead of an east wind from the ice cube (also known as the ocean) the wind direction will be from the southwest giving temps a nice boost by afternoon. In fact, most towns will be near 70 by afternoon. Thursday offers the risk of a few scattered showers but we will stay mild with afternoon highs still expected to reach the 60s despite more clouds.

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.
