Direction Is Back Up

Posted by Chris Lambert

Ok, it's been a cool day overall with a constant onshore wind, but at least we had the sunshine back with us (I know, it took awhile across SE Mass for that). Anyway, in the grand scheme of things, we got off easy with our cool down.  Look at the Midwest and Plains... record cold and snow for the month of May!  At least we don't have to shovel. 

The strong push of cool air from the northeast and east will subside over the weekend, and that's a warmer trend for us.  While it'll remain coolest at the coast, I do expect for the numbers at the coast and across inland communities to move up the next 4 days, each day warmer than the previous. 

High pressure anchored in will not allow for rain through Tuesday before the blocked pattern breaks down and showers may finally arrive by Wednesday and Thursday next week.  Good news for the thirsty lawns and gardens.  

Enjoy the weekend and come join us at the WALK FOR HUNGER http://www.projectbread.org/site/PageServer?pagename=walk_main

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.
