Midwest Heat Being Born

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The first super-heat bubble of air formed yesterday--not here, but out in Minnesota (where just weeks ago they had 1-2 FEET of snow) as temps in the twin cities area reached the upper 90s! A piece of this super heat is heading this way--in modified form. When one goes from frost advisories to left over super-heat bubbles, one typically has to deal with some weather.

This weather will be in the form of clouds and eventually a few sprinkles and showers. It's a warm front heading this way--the leading edge of that much warmer Midwest air and these fronts are great a producing clouds, showers & even thunderstorms. No worries of t-storms this go around but clouds will take over the sky by early afternoon and then a few sprinkles by mid afternoon(3pm). By late afternoon (4pm), a few showers will be found. Many towns will stay dry but there will be a few showers for any outdoor activities later today-this evening. A few lingering showers around this evening, then dry after 9pm. Most towns will pick up less than .10" of rain.

Thursday is a warm day--no records but much warmer than where we have been--especially during the morning hours. In fact, most towns will be 10-20 degrees warmer than where we are this morning (30s). By afternoon, many cities & towns will be in the upper 70s to near 80 under mostly sunny skies. A bit breezy at times.

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:


*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'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.
