Happy Father's Day

Posted by Chris Lambert

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, and to my dad as well.  So what's on tap for the day?  Golf, grilling, just hanging out? Whatever it is, all and all, it's still a pretty good day for dad weather-wise.  I wish I could say the Father's Day forecast exactly repeats Saturday, but we do have a few late afternoon showers to track. 

Those showers are scattered about after 3PM, so I don't expect a lot of rain, but an occasional nuisance shower strolls on through (only 30-40% of us get wet).  Best chance to stay dry until dinner, will be close to the coast, especially the South Shore, Cape and Islands. Temps today are still mild, in the mid 70s to 80 .

A few scattered showers, and even a thunderstorm, rumble on through tonight as a bit of instability and more humid weather settles in.  Monday is muggy with a few pop up storms in the afternoon and temps in the 80s.  Tuesday features more scattered showers and thunderstorms with a muggy feel to the air.  Those showers and storms are more widespread compared to what we'll see today or on Monday.

Beyond Tuesday, high pressure builds in from the northwest, and that means low humidity takes over Wednesday/Thursday before slightly warmer and muggier weather works in Friday/Saturday as that high slides just south of us.  We could have a few scattered storms by Saturday afternoon, but that doesn't look like an organized area of low pressure, just some pop-up showers/storms thanks to humid weather, highs in the mid 80s, and a bit of instability to the atmosphere.

Have a good Sunday and Happy Father's Day.

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.
