Storms End As Heat Leaves

Posted by Chris Lambert

As scattered storms fired up by mid afternoon, we watched an intense line of storms prompt several severe thunderstorm warnings across Plymouth and Bristol counties.  That line brought gusty winds, torrential rain and certainly a plethora of cloud to ground lightning to many towns. 

That was line #1.  Line #2 is closer to the front, which is northwest of us late this afternoon.  As that front gets closer, a few more storms may fire into the early evening.  A severe thunderstorm watch does remain in effect until 9:00PM to guard against any additional storms.  With that said, sometimes when the first line becomes quite powerful, the second line tends to be weaker and more sparsely felt.  That may be the case this evening.   If you heading out to Bon Jovi, they're will be many dry hours from 5PM on, but another passing shower/storm can't be completely ruled out.

Any leftover storms fade out this evening, leaving a slowly clearing and cooling overnight.  Temps finally reach the 60s again in the suburbs by tomorrow morning, but still near 70 in Boston.

Sunday's forecast overall looks good with sun and clouds, dew points dropping into the upper 50s and highs running near 80 at the coast, and middle 80s inland.  The Cape and Islands start off with more clouds and perhaps a shower first thing in the morning, but overall, will get a dry day.

Monday's a beauty before some humidity and showers and storms roll in Tuesday.  While humidity and a rain chance returns Tuesday, the heat will not.  In fact, beyond Tuesday, the pattern hold temps in the upper 70s and lower 80s with an active pattern occasionally throwing in batches of showers and storms.  If your grass is looking like mine, the blades that are still standing will love this upcoming forecast.

Stay cool and be safe this afternoon!

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.
