Warming Up and Unsettled

Posted by Chris Lambert

Well, it certainly was a great weekend weather-wise until this afternoon when the temps dropped and light showers moved in from west to east.  Despite the cool down, the theme for this upcoming week is warmer with higher humidity.  It'll also be unsettled at times. 

The cold shower activity we see the evening is along and out ahead of a warm front.  Obviously, we're on the cooler side of things still.  I do expect these showers to be on and off tonight, with more on than off this evening.   Patchy fog develops as well.

Tomorrow, that warm front moves just to our north, and that means a south to west wind warms us up.  How's 75-80 sound?  The exception will be the 60s across Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands.  Much of the time is dry, however, we have enough instability for pop up scattered showers and thunderstorms.  While I don't expect a high threat of severe weather, there will be quite a bit of moisture in the air that will allow for localized downpours.

Tuesday, we find ourselves back on the cooler side of things with highs in the 60s, an onshore wind and a low chance of rain.

Wednesday and Thursday... back to warm and humid with highs well into the 70s, if not in the lower 80s.  Wednesday chance of storms is early with a warm front, while Thursday's chance of storms in late in the afternoon/evening.  Some of thunderstorms storms could be strong.

Showers and storms taper on Friday and the weekend right now looks good... cool, but also dry.

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.
