Few More Raindrops Ahead

Posted by Chris Lambert

It was a struggle to see much sun along the North Shore today, but for many of us, a couple hours here and there of partly sunny skies graced the area this afternoon until the clouds filled back in late in the day.  Also, at least it was dry afternoon after murky start to the day, which meant golfers and master chefs on the grill made out ok. 

Tonight we'll track a couple areas of unsettled weather.  One to our south, and one to our west.  The batch showers to our south will graze Southeast Mass overnight, providing a few evening showers through Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands.  A few downpours can't be ruled out overnight there as well.  For the rest of us, it'll be a quiet evening, aside from a sprinkle or light shower in western Worcester County.  We'll have to wait for the approaching cold front to our west to get closer before the chance of scattered showers becomes more widespread, well after midnight.

Scattered showers and storms rumble through tomorrow until midday as the cold front crosses.  By early to mid afternoon some drier air starts to work in, sending the temps back into the low to mid 80s with some breaks of sun.  Despite the cool front being through, there may be just enough instability behind it leftover, that with the heating of the day, a passing late day/early evening shower or storm, especially northwest of Boston is not out of the question.

Behind the front...  a couple of beauties ahead.  Low humidity, mostly sunny skies and temps near or above 80 are in store on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Great golf days then, just don't tell your boss I was the one suggesting punching out "sick".

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.
