Summer Being Summer

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Summer being summer. If this is your vacation week---you sure know how to pick them (if not, well.....perhaps next year) as summertime weather will be the rule for much of the week.

High pressure will be anchored along the east coast for the week and that will provide the region with abundant sunshine, temps in the 90s and humidity levels near-tropical. Just about ideal for the beaches, lakes, pools and any other location that provides relief from heat. Away from the beaches, that heat will combine with the humidity to create heat index values near 100--a bit extreme--so use caution if outside for any length of time. Use sunscreen too.

As for the chance of thunderstorms, it will actually be too hot in the upper levels of the atmosphere to produce widespread showers & hibernators but an isolated thunderstorm my occur as the sea breeze pushes inland during the afternoon. The chance of these seabreeze thunderstorms is quite low so there won't be a thunderstorm symbol on my 7-day forecast until Friday. At that time, a cool front will begin pushing into New England by afternoon. That front will lead to scattered afternoon showers/t-storms.

Enjoy the week, enjoy 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:

*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.
