Still Good

Posted by Chris Lambert

How about yesterday?  The 82 in Boston matched the warmest temp we've had since September 13th.  Of course, with a wind gusting past 30mph and relative humidity near 18%, it certainly didn't feel oppressive. 

We've lost the 80 degree weather for now, but that doesn't mean it won't be nice.  We start off with lots of sunshine this morning, and will mix in just a few clouds with that sun this afternoon.  Temps today run 10-12 degrees cooler than yesterday, but near 70 is just for many this time of year.  The average high is in the mid 60s, so we're not far off that. 

So how bout' that weekend?  Overall, we make out ok.  Saturday is the warmer and brighter of the two days with highs in the low to mid 60s at the coast, near 70 inland.  I can't rule out a sprinkle or brief, light shower northwest of 495 in the afternoon, but the rain chance overall is low  Sunday, the atmosphere is a bit more unstable and I expect a sprinkle of brief shower to be scattered about the area with the highest chance outside 495.  The overall rain chance Sunday runs 20-30%, so not all towns will see rain, and even if you do get a shower, dry weather is still the dominate theme through the day. More clouds are around and highs range from the upper 50s along the immediate coast to mid 60s inland.  At this point, graduation/birthday parties should still be a go on Sunday.

Enjoy the weekend!

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.
