Wild Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Some wild weather across southern New England yesterday with an EF-1 tornado in Windsor Locks CT, a microburst in Agawam and numerous reports of flash flooding. Oh and it was wicked humid too. Similar weather on tap today.

I don't think we'll see as many tornado warnings as yesterday because the weather system (warm front) is a farther north today--up across central New England. This should preclude a repeat of Monday but there will still be showers/t-storms/downpours across the region really at any time through the course of the day. There will also be intervals of sunshine. Even the limited amount of sunshine will boost temps into the low 80s during the afternoon.

As we step toward Wednesday and beyond high pressure will shove this excessive humidity, clouds and rain out of here (well west of southern New England). This means increasing sunshine and higher temps with many towns in the mid 80s tomorrow and up near 90 on the 4th of July. In fact, beginning on Thursday, our afternoon highs will get close to 90 for several days to come. Just about ideal for holiday weekend plans. Be safe & enjoy!

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.
