Today marks the halfway point of meteorological summer (June 1st-August 31st). Amazing how fast it is going and also how hot and wet it has been. Usually it's either hot or wet but not both. The culprit has been the jet stream working in tandem with the Bermuda high pressure. We've had stretches where the jet stream has delivered several days of wet & humid weather. Normally, this jet stream would then flow out of Canada for a few days with dry air but this year the Bermuda high pressure has been moving from the Atlantic northwest into New England not allowing us to dry out and pumping some wicked heat into the region. Double whammy.

No different as we begin the second half of summer. Another hot day across southern New England with many cities & towns in the lower 90s. Toss in some humidity and it will feel like 90-100. In terms of thunderstorms, only a 10% of 1 or 2 popping up in southern New Hampshire and the Worcester hills. The next few days will hold onto the hot & humid pattern as the Bermuda High continues its vacation here in New England. By Saturday a cool front will approach the region and will kick off showers & t-storms late in the day. By Sunday we will finally see a refreshing bubble of dry air from Canada settle in for a few days.

Stay cool (and classy)

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.
