Hot Town...Summer In the City

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I could sing it...but I won't. I'll just discuss the meteorology that inspired that song (and blog title). High pressure is still anchored along the eastern seaboard this morning and this high pressure system will pump heat & humidity into New England yet again. Many cities & towns will achieve *heat wave* status later today (3 consecutive days of 90+ heat) with the low 90s for afternoon temps expected. Like yesterday all this heat & humidity will spark a few late afternoon/evening thunderstorms. Highest chance of the storms will likely be across western & central New England.

Tomorrow is another hot day with temps up close to 90. There will be a higher chance of thunderstorms across New England due to a cool front approaching the region and this front will get stuck in the northeast for the remainder of the week. Not good. It appears another wet pattern will develop due to this front being stuck here in the northeast. While you will see a bunch of raindrops & lightning bolts on our 7-day forecast map, I am not advertising a washout in any of those days but rather clouds, showers, storms and sun all sharing the sky. I am confident that the 95 degree heat will fade and that it will remain very humid for the foreseeable future.

Summer being 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.
