Lasting Heat

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

 3 heat waves in one summer---impressive, most impressive. Our latest will be the longest as today will make it four straight with at least 2 more to follow. the last heat wave was a 5 day variety---impressive within its own right as that hasn't been done since 2010. In fact, if saturday ends up being a 90 degree day for Boston metro it will mark 7 straight days----the longest heat wave since August 11-18 2002!

That's just temperature but the other factor out there is the humidity. That will make it feel like 100 across most of southern New England. That's dangerous heat when the body isn;t cooled (either by the ocean, pool, lake, slip-n-slide or even drinking water). Be safe out there. In terms of showers or thunderstorms, litlte if any activity is expected. there could could be a brief downpour that tags 1 or 2 towns but that would be it.

Sick of the heat? We own this pattern for the remainder of the week and into the start of the weekend but on Saturday a cool front will charge out of Canada with a big bag of dry, cool air. This bag of happiness won't make it into town on Saturday but the moving process will lead to some powerful showers/t-storms Saturday afternoon & evening. behind these storms look for delgithful weather on Sunday and lasting into early next week.

156 days until winter.

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.
