Just In Time

Posted by Chris Lambert

Summer officially starts Friday at 1:04 A.M., and Mother Nature's sending in summer weather for us just in time.  Mid to late June averages highs near 80 degrees, and we'll be there temperature-wise over the next few days.  Mostly dry too!

It won't feel like summer tonight, that's for sure if you live outside the city.  With our low humidity air mass in place, combined with clear skies and calm winds, temperatures tumble overnight.  Many of the suburbs bottom off in the middle 40s.  Even in Boston, mid to upper 50s means it's a nice night to leave the windows open in the city, and get some fresh air in.

Despite the cool start tomorrow, it's a fantastic days as we quickly bounce of the morning lows and head for the 75-80 degree range.

Overall, it still looks like we're breaking the wet pattern as it's mainly dry through the weekend.  Notice I said "mainly dry"?  As the humidity and warmth build back in, I can't rule out a passing storm from moving on in too.  As of now, it's possible to catch one after midnight Saturday night and early Sunday along a warm front.  Not something I'd start rearranging plans for.  Still dealing with a mainly dry Sunday and temps in the 80s.

Go Bruins!!!!!!!!!

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.
