Sky Opens Up

Posted by Pete Bouchard

The heavens opened up today, and this was their stairway:

Ominous clouds heralded the arrival of the storms in Attleboro:

And your rainfall totals:

All in all, more hits than misses...except for parts of SE Mass. As we move forward in the forecast, there will be more that divides us (north vs. south) in the days to come.

What do I mean by that? The front that pushed the storms along will stall and decay across SE Mass. - that being Middleboro, Plymouth, and Wareham. Here's where we divide the Commonwealth into the "haves" and "have-nots". Northwest of the above mentioned towns/cities, dry air will infiltrate tomorrow and Thursday. Southeast of that line, it will remain sticky....for the foreseeable future. All throughout the South Shore and out through the Cape, a small threat for a pop-up shower will exist through Thursday - and possibly Friday. This isn't a threat you cancel plans over, however, since the chances are only around 30-40% and the showers will be passing.

All in all, a quieter, less-humid, drier forecast....with a lot of summer to it.

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.
