The End Is Near

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

New week but we are still in the same weather pattern as last week with high pressure firmly in control across the northeast. That means after some early morning low clouds & fog, skies will be mostly sunny from mid morning and into the afternoon. That sunshine will boost temps into the upper 60s--low 60s along the coast. Nice spring day. Tuesday offers very similar weather with a little more humidity & warmth in the air as many towns see their afternoon temps soar into the 70s--even at the coast.

On Wednesday we see it all come to an end.

Blocking high pressure finally leaves New England and allows storminess in the south to move up into our part of the world in the form of clouds & a few showers. The storm will be a bit of a slow mover so most of Wednesday will be dry with showers holding off until late day. Of course, this slow-moving storm will keep the chance of rain here in New England quite high for the entire day on Thursday. Temps,  naturally,  take a hit on Thursday struggling to reach 60.

This storm will slowly exit the region on Friday only to make way for a whole new batch of rain for the upcoming weekend.

We do need rain though. It's time.

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.
