Back and Forth

Posted by Chris Lambert

Quite a few clouds in the sky at times this afternoon, but the atmosphere lacked ample moisture to produce showers, so we made out just fine with temps near 70.  Even the coast made it well into the 60s before the onshore wind knocked temps back.

So can we do the same on Sunday?  For the most part, the weather works out ok.  We'll track more clouds that limit the sun at times, and high temps warm into the mid to upper 60s.  One thing to watch for tomorrow afternoon is the chance for some sprinkles or a shower as the atmosphere this go around has a bit more moisture.  The highest chance for seeing that is west of 495, through southern Worcester County.    A higher chance for showers arrives for all of us tomorrow evening, into Monday morning as a warm front lifts through and to our north.

When warm fronts go north, temps and humidity go up.  We'll notice the change by Monday afternoon as highs surge into the upper 70s and humidity values increase to sticky levels.  That muggy fell to the air also starts us off on Tuesday.   Tuesday itself becomes a transition day though with scattered showers and storms midday and in the afternoon.  I could see Tuesday as a day that reaches the low to mid 70s late morning, and fall through the 60s in the late afternoon as winds turn onshore thanks to a backdoor cold front. 

That'll leave us cooler on Wednesday, only to see a warm front come back through early Thursday, followed by another cold front on Friday.  Whip lashed yet?  Indeed, fronts waiver back and forth next week, producing scattered showers and storms at times.  Keep the umbrella handy, but also expect dry parts of each day as well. 

Longer range projections show more stability by next weekend.  Hopefully that pattern can stick for us.   The upside this week is that we need the rain for the water on the lawns/gardens and certainly could use it to knock down those pollen counts!

Have a good Sunday.

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.
