Can Finally Breath

Posted by Chris Lambert

So how many days recently have we said the word humid?  Yeh, quite a few.  In fact, at times it started to feel like we were living in Florida and not New England. 

Well today, I have some good news, the humidity is lower and the temperatures on the comfortable side and it's rain-free.  The bad news? It'll be cool along the coast for you beachegoers (low to mid 70s), and a lot of clouds are around through the day. Hey, at least it's Friday!

The weekend looks OK overall.  A sluggish start tomorrow with clouds and areas of fog will yield to breaks of sun.  I can't rule out a passing shower or thunderstorm, but much of the time is rain-free.  Highs run close to 80 as winds turn from the NE to the SE.

Humidity jumps back up Sunday, with highs in the mid to upper 80s and a few storms scattered about as a possibility. Still, many hours are dry.

Next week, we'll have the heat and humidity with temps running around 90, if not in the lower 90s and dew points around 70.  An isolated storm threat is there in the afternoon Wednesday and Thursday, but much of the time is dry with hazy sun. 

Looking for a break from the heat and humidity... longe range, we could see a refreshing blast of cooler and lower humidity Canadian air sometime next weekend.

Have a good weekend!

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.
