Heat Out. Humidity Still In.

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Our heat wave is done. Quite an impressive stretch as it was our longest--5 days--since August of 2010. There may be a couple places that reach 90 again but for most cities & towns, those temps will reach the upper 80s.

As for the humidity wave....that's still going strong. In fact, much of this week will still offer oppressive levels of humidity and that humidity combining with a weakening cool front will lead to a daily round of scattered showers & t-storms. If this is your vacation week it will be good with only 1 day, Thursday, possibly earning that dubious distinction of "washout". The other days will just see that classic moniker of "scattered PM storms"--where much of the day is dry as are many towns but a few storms will pop up through the afternoon heat.

This will be the case for today, tomorrow and Wednesday. As for Thursday--that possible washout day--scattered showers & storms may arrive as early as 8am and linger throughout the day. These storms will serve a good purpose though---to sweep the humidity out to sea by late Thursday night & Friday!

Enjoy the week.

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.
