Goodbye Sun

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

One more hurdle until the weekend--Thursday?.....Well, I guess, but I'm thinking weather. It's another storm racing eastward into New England right now. It's actually the same storm that spawned a derecho  (large complex of thunderstorms producing straight-line wind damage) last evening across the Midwest. We don't have to worry about any severe weather but we are tracking more rain heading this way.

Until the first raindrops arrive around 1-4pm it will be dry with sun fading behind clouds quickly this morning. Anything planned for the outdoors this morning is fine but anything after 3-4pm and the likelihood of rain is high. that rain will pick up in intensity this evening and last through the overnight hours. Yesterday I thought we would get whacked with 2-4" of rain but now I'm thinking 1-2" of rain (even lighter amounts along the MA/NH border). As for wind overnight, a non issue along the coast from Plymouth north but on the Cape/Islands/Buzzards Bay look for a strong northeast wind between 15-35mph.

Improving is the theme on Friday as we will start with rain & some coastal wind but both taper off by noon tomorrow. there might even be enough dry air/sunshine at times late in the day tomorrow. The good news is that a huge chunk of dry air will arrive just in time for the upcoming weekend. Sunshine is expected both days with afternoon highs near 80 each day.

Peace!

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.
