From Fog to Summah

Posted by Chris Lambert

Patience pays off today.  The mid-May sun angle is just as strong as late July/early August, and that  means the low clouds and fog burn off by mid-morning.  Once that occurs, temperatures jump up into the upper 70s and lower 80s.  Mid to late afternoon, a sea breeze at the coast drops temps back a bit, but overall, the beach won't be a bad place to be this afternoon.  The rain chance today is limited to an isolated shower or thunderstorm across southern N.H.  or northern Mass, close to the N.H. border.

The Sox game tonight is dry with temps near 70 to start, then falling into the 60s.  While the Sox game is dry, the overnight hours are not.  After midnight, more showers and storms move in.  A few of those showers and storms linger into the early morning hours Saturday, but from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, I do expect some dry stretches and temps spiking into the mid 70s.  Late-day and into the evening, more thunderstorms come rolling in, some of which may be strong.

Sunday features lower humidity for mom, and mainly dry conditions.  I say mainly dry, because I can't rule out a passing shower in a few towns, so keep the umbrella on standby just in case.

Have a good weekend!

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.
