Summer Time

Posted by Chris Lambert

Summer rang in at 1:04AM today with the solstice, and right on cue, summer weather settled in.  Temps this afternoon reached the lower to middle 80s, providing a nice day overall.  We did manage for a few towns to pick up a shower, but they were few and far between. 

Mainly clear skies prevail overnight as temps fall to near 60 degrees. With temperatures near 60 degrees to start tomorrow, the warm-up will be quick as highs head for the 80s. Some clouds mix in with the sun this weekend from complexes of showers and storms to our west and northwest, but much of the time is warm and dry.  I can't rule out a passing afternoon storm, especially northwest of Boston, but the threat is overall low.  About 10% chance of a storm Saturday and 30% on Sunday. 

Monday and Tuesday feature the peak of the heat and humidity with highs near 90, and just an isolated storm firing in the afternoon. 

Warmth and humidity continue on Wednesday with highs in the upper 80s.  However, the risk for more widespread storms is higher.

How about the Mountains or the Cape this weekend?   Best chance for afternoon storms will be across the mountains.  Temps near 80 there tomorrow and near 84 on Sunday.  The Cape will be the cooler, mid 70s Saturday and upper 70s Sunday, but also dry, and certainly a good place to be on this first week of summer.

Have a good one, and we'll see some of you at the Health and Fitness Expo this weekend.

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.
