What A Day

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The last day of spring will be fantastic! What a way to close the books on the vernal season. As our weather producer, Jim Colman says...."what a season it was..rain, snow, wind, sun and more rain" Truth Jim, truth. Only sun today with afternoon temps in the upper 70s--a great day for all outdoor activities.

As we look toward summer (officially arriving at 1:09am Friday) it will behave very similar to today's weather. Sunshine and afternoon temps near 80. In fact, the first weekend of summer offers continued sunshine and a warming trend with afternoon temps into the low & mid 80s. Humidity will also be on the rise. The added heat & humidity may lead to some widely scattered late day t-storms across central/western & northern New England but we're talking less than a 20% chance (so small that the thunderstorm symbol will not be on our 7-day graphic).

I think we will hold onto the warm & increasingly humid weather into next week. This will, in time, bring an increasing threat to summertime thunderstorms---you know, the ones that don't arrive until 4-5pm (and are scattered--not widespread). Ready for summer.

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.
