Fresh Air

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Few days in summer can measure up to a bright blue sky with refreshing air.

Unfortunately for us, not everyone was able to get a seat at the table. Southern New England was divided today with bright blue to the north of the Pike and funky clouds to the south.

(Thanks to @NMerianosWX)

That's our old front sitting over Southeast Mass. It wasn't enough to fire off showers, but it gave us a dense overcast in some spots. I'm watching that slowly work north through the night as what's left of the front tries to push back to NH.

It's a trip the front will never finish. Whatever clouds are around tomorrow morning will lift by afternoon, and with a massive high pressure system moving in, our fate is sealed.

Heat will pump back in Sunday, and stay for week. We're talking tropical air (again) folks, and the heat will get thrown in as a package deal. Low 90s should reign from Monday through Friday (if you're on vaca, man did you pick a winner!) with some spots challenging the mid 90s early in the week.

Hunker down, enjoy the weekend and prepare for the heat.

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.
