This and That

Posted by Chris Lambert

Rain, wind, breaks of sun, thunder, fog... and that's just today.  

Showers this Saturday morning tend to fade, allowing for some dry breaks at times, including a few rays of sunshine managing to sneak in between the clouds.  I don't see today a bright day overall, but at least we do get some dry hours.   The highest rain chances I see this morning/lunch time are across SE Mass, then the highest rain chance this afternoon is northwest of Boston. Keeping it dry for the entire afternoon near the city is a tall order though.  Eventually those storms northwest of the city move east late afternoon and early this evening.

A few of the thunderstorms mid afternoon-evening could produce locally strong winds, small hail, and heavy rain, but widespread severe weather is not expected.

Bottom line,  I'd keep the umbrella on standby throughout the day.   Fog has even been an issue across the Cape this morning too, visibility should improve a bit as winds pick up.  How bout' the Sox game?  Near 70, windy, shower possible.

Mother's Day features temps in the mid to upper 60s, lots of clouds, and once again a few showers around. If you're taking mom out to brunch, I'd keep the umbrella handy again. 

Dry and cool weather works in Monday-Wednesday.

Have a good weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

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.
