Blue H Dominates

Posted by Chris Lambert

In the world of weather, blue H's represent high pressure and nice weather, and the red L's represent low pressure and stormy weather.  For us, it's the big, blue H that rules the skies of New England over much of the upcoming 7+ days.  

Clear skies and low humidity are still in place tonight, and that means another cool night for the suburbs.  Temps fall back into the upper 40s and lower 50s there, and hold close to 60 degrees in the city.

More of the same for tomorrow, and we'll take that for sure as highs near 80 with sunshine and low humidity.

So how about the weekend?  Good overall, with a fantastic Saturday and a pretty good Sunday.  Despite an area of high pressure over New England, it is a touch farther northeast over the weekend.  That'll allow a wave of low pressure, along a front, to move just to our south on Sunday.  There's a slight risk of a Cape shower Sunday morning, but it looks like the bulk of the rain stays south, although more clouds could be in the mix.  We'll call it clouds, breaks of sun and mid 70s there for the 2nd half of the weekend there.   The rest of us near or just surpass 80 both Saturday and Sunday with more sun than clouds, although a sea breeze at the beach could knock temps back into the 70s at the beach.

Next week, we'll watch the influence of the blue H to our northeast get replaced by the influence of a blue H over the Ohio Valley.  That'll send in warmth and higher humidity as we remain dry.  The last time we hit 90 degrees was on July 20th, and it looks like we can do it again by Wednesday or Thursday.

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.
