Dramatic Drop

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I think the backdoor cold front is one of the wildest things Mom Nature offers us here in New England. Were you outside late yesterday afternoon/evening when it came through?! Temps dropped nearly 15-20 degrees along the coastline when the front came through. That front stalled out in western New England but it was successful in shoving out the late May warmth for a bit.

Today is a cooler day for everyone, a day where afternoon temps will be in the low-mid 50s along the coast and only near 60 farther inland (normal for this time of year). We will also see clouds in the sky at times--most of those clouds will be focused along the South Shore/Buzzards Bay and the Cape/Islands. 

Your weekend is a dry one with partly to mostly sunny skies both days. In terms of the temps, it will be similar to today where inland cities/towns reach the low to mid 60s while coastal cities/towns climb at a slower pace reaching 60 by afternoon. For Sunday, you can add on 5 degrees for everyone (near 70 inland and 63 for the coast).

I'm not rooting for rain but we need it. No sign of rain until Wednesday of next week so water the lawns/gardens yourselves for a few more days.

Have a great weekend! Peace!

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.
