Pretty Good Weekend Overall

Posted by Chris Lambert

Sure, it's a cool start with many of the suburbs down into the upper 30s and lower 40s, but we'll warm up quickly through the day as that sun helps us out.

It may not be picture perfect all weekend long, but I don't see many issues for graduation parties, ball games or golf outings.  Today is the slightly warmer and brighter of the two days with highs in the low to mid 60s at the coast, lower 70s inland.  I can't rule out a sprinkle or brief, light shower near the MA/NH border in afternoon/evening, 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 though and highs range from the low to mid 60s along the immediate coast to the upper 60s inland.  

A better chance of showers slides in with a warm front overnight Sunday and Monday morning with muggier weather to follow for Monday and Tuesday.

The rain chance is there most days next week, however, no day stands as a washout.  With a front close-by, occasional batches of showers/thunder roll along it, bringing us periodic rain.  We'll get our dry stretches in there too, just tough to pinpoint the timing of it each day this far out.

We'll fine tune that forecast as we go, in the meantime, 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.
