Cruise Control

Posted by Chris Lambert

With so many ups and downs in Spring around New England, it's nice to establish a pattern that's dry and near, or just above normal temperatures wise.  The downside, the pollen counts remain high, and some days features elevated brush fire threats with such a dry air mass in place.  The upside of course is the dry weather, perfect for hitting the golf course, the baseball field, or any other outdoor activity.  Although, still a bit cool for the beach. 

Just like a car on cruise control, I don't see a lot of day to day changes in the forecast next week as an area of high pressure builds and anchors in to our northeast.  It's just close enough to us to shield us from any rain, which gets pinned down just to our west.  More clouds mix in with the sun Monday and Tuesday, but temps are similar which means near 60 at the coast, near 70 inland.  Tuesday, a few showers manage to pop up as far east as the Connecticut River Valley, but dry weather likely prevails from Worcester to Boston.

Wednesday through Saturday of next week feature more nice weather. Days that have a stronger east breeze see temperatures in the upper 50s coast, mid 60s inland.  When winds are light, temperatures reach the low 70s inland and low to mid 60s at the coast.  The warmest day of that stretch looks to be Thursday at this point.

Enjoy the 2nd half of the weekend and Go Sox!

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.
