Building Heat

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Last evening was a nice little treat if you lived along the coast (and even into metrowest) as a cool front dropped in from Maine. That front sent temps from the low 80s to the mid 60s within just an hour or two. That front is only making a cameo though as the heat & humidity will surge back into metro Boston today. In fact, plan on many towns to reach the upper 80s by afternoon. Sun & clouds will vie for your attention for much of the day but little to no rain is expected from Boston & points south---just an isolated thundershower possible north & west of town.

For the 4th of July, look for a good old fashioned hazy, hot & humid kind of day with afternoon temps in the low 90s (mid 80s on the sand). An isolated thundershower is possible across western & northern New England late in the day but it's essentially a dry day. No issues expected for fireworks displays tomorrow evening.

This will be the start of a heat wave as several days of low 90s are anticipated across southern New England. Perfect timing for you vacationers (and those in the vacation business)!

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.
