Looks Can Be Deceiving

Posted by Chris Lambert

Bright blue skies in early May, and looking outside, you'd think it's a nice, mild afternoon.  Deep inland it was, but closer toward the coast, looks can be deceiving. A wind straight out of the east once again held temperatures down in the 50s, creating a bit of a chill to the air.  At least it was bright and a fine day on the golf course or ball field as long as you had that jacket handy. 

It'll be a cool night tonight under mainly clear skies this evening and many of the suburbs heading back into the low to mid 30s for overnight lows.  One thing we'll watch for is some low clouds developing near the coast, especially across SE Mass.  That would actually hold temps in the 40s overnight if they form, but also be stubborn to let the sun shine tomorrow morning.  Best chance to see some low clouds to start Sunday morning are Plymouth/Bristol Counties, with an even higher chance for the Cape and Islands.  

Away from the Cape/Islands, sunshine returns Sunday, yet, with an onshore wind, warming temps up is once again a bit of a struggle.  Since the winds are not due east, but more ESE to SE, I'll add a few degrees on to today's highs when planning on the forecasted highs Sunday.  Mid 50s coast, mid 60s inland and near 70 outside 495. 

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

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:


*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'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.
