Feast Or Famine

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Here were some rain totals from yesterday: Bedford with .04" and Fitchburg .65". Feast or famine...welcome to late spring. Truly the definition of the term *scattered showers*. The storm that created these showers is still with us today so the weather message is similar to yesterdays.

That means a little of everything--at any time. Clouds, fog and some sunshine at times mixed in with those showers & even some thunderstorms this afternoon. Outdoor plans can happen today as there will be large gaps between the showers but have the rain gear on stand-by---especially after 10am. Temps are off to a warm (and humid) start and by afternoon those numbers will reach the upper 60s/low 70s.

Friday is an in-between day (The Cure) as the chance for scattered showers will be minimal to non existent with high pressure moving through the region. This high pressure won't act like its predecessor and linger for 12 days though, enjoy that sunshine. Warm & humid with temps in the upper 70s....possibly our first beach day of the season.

Onto the weekend, Saturday offers clouds and a renewed chance of showers & t-storms. Right now, it appears the highest chance of rain/lightning will be after 2pm and last right through the night. Warm & humid once again. Mothers Day starts with clouds & leftover showers but skies will clear during the afternoon. Late Sunday afternoon will be quite nice across southern New England.

Enjoy!

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.
