Fantastic Saturday!

Posted by Chris Lambert

It's a great looking day ahead of us as any areas of fog burn off for sunshine and temperatures warm back into the lower to middle 80s.  Beach temps run a couple degrees either side of 80 with winds turning more onshore mid to late afternoon.  Humidity values come up a bit, but still modest compared to what we've seen so far this summer.  Dew points run back into the lower 60s.

Any of you Swifties heading out to Gillette this evening?  No dodging rain drops tonight with late afternoon temps in the low 80s and early evening temps in the mid 70s. 

Actually, today is one of the better days across all of New England that we've had this summer.  So many times this summer, flooding downpours have moved across northern New England when we've been dry here, or, when's it's been pleasant north, it's been a battle with rain and clouds down in southern New England.  That's not the case today as 70s and 80s and sunshine are widespread across the 6 state region.

Unfortunately, that won't last  through Sunday as we're actually tracking two areas of unsettled weather for the second half of the weekend.  One, a wave of low pressure to our south that'll likely bring scattered showers in tomorrow morning with the highest threat for that AM rain along the I-95 corridor, point's south and east.  Area number two is an approaching front off to our west that'll pop a few showers and thunderstorms out ahead of it.  The best chance for those afternoon storms will be outside 495. In the afternoon, we may start catching some dry hours where we had the morning showers farther east.  

Kind of a complicated forecast Sunday, but bottom line, I'd keep the umbrella handy, but don't expect an all day washout.  I know it is a Sunday in the summer, so I'm sure there are plenty of outdoor activities planned. Try our 7Weather app to track rain on the radar yourself while you are out.  Also, I'll do my best to keep you updated on the radar trends on twitter Sunday as well through @clamberton7.

Have a good 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:

*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.
