September 14th, 2012. That's the last time Boston had a high temp of 80 (81 that day)--nearly 8 months ago. That streak should end today as yesterday's much advertised warm front did its thing, leaving us with a nice warm bubble of air today. I think metro Boston reaches the low 80s under partly to mostly sunny skies. One reason for the warmth is it's leftover super heat from the Midwest and also a fiesty west wind 10-20mph keeping that chilly ocean air at bay. All in all, a great late spring/early summer day.

Tomorrow won't be as warm as a cool front slips through New England very early in the day. This will prevent us from reaching the 80s but i think inland areas will reach the low 70s. Along the coast, a sea breeze returns during the afternoon hours keep metro Boston (along with north/south shore) in the upper 60s. Sunny skies yet again.

As we head for the weekend, high pressure is in control--mostly. I do think there will be a fair amount of clouds each afternoon and the high pressure system will be centered up in the Gulf of Maine and that means temps will be in the 60s for afternoon highs----low 60s along the coast and mid to upper 60s well inland. Some rather spiffy weather for this time of year.

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.
