Bottles of Water and Sunscreen

Posted by Chris Lambert

So, kind of a big weekend for the beaches, the boats and the lakes huh?  With the Fourth of July upon us, now all we need is sizzling summer weather to come on in. 

Mother Nature will sure provide that as temperatures crack 90 degrees tomorrow, and remain in the low to mid 90s through the weekend and into early next week.  The storm threat is low, but not zero, as I do expect an occasional thunderstorm to pop.  The highest chance for that will be north and west of Boston.

Lakes Region next 4 days:  Temps run 85-90 with a few hit or miss pop-up storms each afternoon despite many of the hours being dry.   If you're camping, keep an eye to the sky, but expect a lot of hazy sun too.

Cape Cod/Islands next 4 days:  After a several day stretch of clouds, we've finally broke the pattern for the better.  Across the Cape and over the Vineyard, temps run 82-85 degrees with any low clouds and fog early, yielding to hazy sun.  No rain here, but there will be a bit of a breeze out of the southwest, gusting 20-25mph.  Nantucket, you'll be a bit cooler, 75-77 for you.

Enjoy the week and, not to sound like mom, but don't forget to drink plenty of water and use sunscreen ;-)

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.
