Fall To Summer

Posted by Chris Lambert

A taste of early Fall for us today as a burst of mid September weather blew in with low humidity, a strong breeze and temps only in the lower to middle 70s. 

As skies go clear this evening, and wind lightens up, temps tumble.  The thermometer hits the mid to upper 40s in the cooler burbs by daybreak with mid to upper 50s felt in the Boston area.  So if you leave the windows open tonight, the extra blanket may indeed be in order.

We'll warm quickly tomorrow thanks to the sunshine and dry air in place.  Highs range from the mid 70s in Worcester, upper 70s in Boston and near 80 across SE Mass.  Low humidity remains in place throughout the day with a nice westerly breeze.

Overall the weekend looks good, although we'll track a wave of low pressure that passes along a front just to our south.  That could throw some more clouds toward the Cape and Islands late Saturday and the first half of Sunday.  There's a small risk of a few showers hitting the Cape Sunday morning, but overall, I'm maintaining a rather dry forecast.  Just something to watch now.

Next week, the dry weather continues but the heat and humidity build in.  Looks like the next chance to hit 90 will be either Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

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.
