With the snap of the fingers we were thrown into summer this afternoon. Heat, humidity, A/C and shorts - with a hazy sun to boot. But with the sea breeze knocking back the temperatures (and bringing in a round of downpours this evening), there are changes afoot.

Tomorrow's a cooler day thanks to that change in wind direction. Highs will struggle to get out of (and in some cases won't) the 60s. Cool east winds will feed the clouds overhead, and there may even be showers flaring up in the afternoon. (No thunder.)

That front is catapulted back over us Wednesday, so it's back in the sauna we go. Temperatures soar into the 80s and the beaches will be calling once again. Thursday is the day we'll have to fret about the storms as a cold front comes slamming into the muggy, warm air.

With that said, we are on the lookout for the potential for severe weather on Thursday. After the tornadoes in Oklahoma this afternoon, everyone is edgy about the any and all threats. I'm not seeing a major outbreak later this week, but anytime you have a cold front and a warm, humid airmass, you have to lay out the possibilities.

We'll be on top of it!

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.
