In & Out of It

Posted by Chris Lambert

Showers and thunderstorms roll in and out this afternoon and this evening.  Locally heavy rain is the main threat, but as always, watch out for the lightning, and in the worst case, one or two of these storms could contain gusty winds and small hail.  The chance to see the strongest storms remains higher across western Mass, but one or two may drift in toward 495.  With so many clouds and early afternoon showers around, the threat for severe weather from Worcester to Boston is relatively low.  The clouds and rain help stabilize the atmosphere.  

Despite a rain delay at Fenway to start, I still think we'll get the game in as enough dry hours between showers should allow the Sox to play ball. 

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.
