Hottest Day of The Year

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Folks, I can't lie....I'm all out of material in regards to this heat. I've been blogging about it every day this week. It's not much different today as it will still be hot--dangerously so this afternoon.

I think this will be our hottest day of the year in Boston as the city will see a high temp of 100 degrees. The last time Boston had a high temp of 100 was 2 years ago--nearly to the day, July 22nd, 2011. Like many other days this week, it's not just the heat it is the humidity as well and that humidity will make it feel like 108 across much of the region. Once again please stay hydrated (have a banana too--helps to keep your electrolytes up there--important on hot days!). Too hot for any thunderstorms to form.

The thunder threat changes tomorrow though as a cold front charges out of Canada (with trumpeting bugles). This cold front won't bring relief tomorrow so the heat wave will reach 7 days as many towns reach the lower 90s but as this front rams into the heat/humidity it will pop several showers & t-storms after 2pm. Some of these storms will be severe with high wind, heavy rain, hail and frequent lightning. The storms will stay off the beaches until after 5pm.

This front will do its thing and sweep the extreme heat & humidity out of here by Sunday with many towns having afternoon temps near 80---normal for this time of year!

Stay cool today--have a great 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:


*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.
