Can Only Go Up From Here

Posted by Chris Lambert

In terms of late April weather, this in about as ugly as it gets.  As of this writing, the highest temp so far in Boston today is 43 degrees.  That's the average low for this time of year!  We'll deal with the cool weather throughout the overnight hours tonight as well as the rain and drizzle.  I don't expect a lot of rain inland, but a steady mist at times will keep it damp.  Close to the coast, 1/4" or so could fall, but the highest chance for soaking rains come through the Cape and Islands.  There, 1-2" is possible. 

Initially, I was planning on a quick turnaround tomorrow, but the timing has slowed a bit.  No question, it'll be a nicer day and a warmer day, but high temperatures vary significantly depending on location.  Morning clouds are slow to break, but will by the afternoon.  Winds are still north in eastern Mass through most of the day, and that holds the temps down in the mid 50s at the coast.  Outside Route 128, we'll be in the 60-65 range in the late afternoon, and outside 495, 65-70 in not out of the question by 4-5PM.  

Another front slides through tomorrow night and Thursday morning with more scattered showers.  After that.... Easy Street folks!  60s and 70s are in store the rest of the 7-day forecast with localized sea breezes keeping it a bit cooler at the coastline.

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.
