Trying Times

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

These are indeed trying times and an unsettled weather pattern that is just relentless. It's a pattern we saw back in February-March. Thankfully this time of year the strength of this pattern is much weaker than the winter. Despite that fact, check out this stat:

*Normal May AND June (61 days) rainfall for Boston is 7.17"

*Rainfall in Boston the first 11 DAYS of June is 6.60"

*Bam!

That's a lot of rain---and you know that. unfortunately we have even more rain on the way as a June nor'easter heads this way. This new storm will take aim on New England tomorrow afternoon (arrival 2-3pm) and again on Friday. By the time the storm departs late Friday afternoon most cities & towns will pick up 2-4" of more rain.

Backing up to today offers some leftovers from yesterday's storm. A lot of clouds, some sprinkles and brief showers (lasting less than 2 minutes) and seasonably cool temps with afternoon highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.

The good news is that these storms are moving along at a decent pace so the upcoming weekend offers sunshine on Saturday and partly sunny skies on 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:

*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.
