Timeout

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Even though Boston didn't reach 90 yesterday (85), Taunton and Fitchburg both did, extending their heat waves. It ends today for everyone. We had a lil backdoor front yesterday push all the way to western New England--popping off showers & t-storms along the way. Those storms are long gone but the front did its thing--removing the 90 degree heat from much of New England for a few days.

The trade-off to this pause in the hot pattern will be starting the day with clouds & fog. In fact, it may take much of the day to shed those low clouds/fog at the beaches. Farther inland, the low clouds & fog will give way to sunshine by early afternoon. Inland locations--towns, pools, golf courses, tennis courts will find afternoon temps near 80 with humidity whereas the beaches of southern New England will see temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. Despite all the clouds & humidity, I don't think we have to be concerned with showers & t-storms. Sweet.

As we step into midweek, the warmer air will return from western New England. This return trip will kick off 2 rounds of showers & t-storms on Wednesday. The first round occurs early in the morning (4-9am) while the second round arrives late in the day (after 5pm). In between will be partly sunny skies and temps bouncing back into the 80s.

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:

*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.
