A Bit Chilly

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

A few frosty mornings are in store as we have seen (and will see) temps dip into the 30s/40s with one last shot of chilly air from Canada. That chilly air arrived late yesterday afternoon on a stiff westerly breeze and that breeze will do its thing again today keeping a cool feel to the air the entire day. That sun will shine brightly at first but during the midday and afternoon, more clouds will arrive furthering the cool theme to the day. Decent day though.

Tonight we are clear and cold with frost likely outside the Rt 128 belt as many towns find their way into the low and mid 30s by early Tuesday morning. Any tender vegetation should be covered up/protected from the chilly temps. Even downtown Boston will be cooler than this morning with lows into the low 40s. Tuesday itself is another sunny but seasonably cool day with afternoon highs near 64 (normal high is 66).

Wednesday starts cool but the afternoon hours will see temps in the upper 60s despite more clouds around. Those clouds will be tied to a warm front that will slide through New England Wednesday night with some sprinkles & showers--our only chance of rain this week. Warmer weather is set to return by Thursday.

Peace!

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.
