Coasting Through The Month

Posted by Pete Bouchard

So far this month, we've seen somewhat cool temperatures (averaging a little over 1° below normal) and drier than normal conditions.

But that's hiding the major selling point of this month: it's been gor-GE-ous! And I don't expect that to change too much in the near future.

However, in the near term I do expect we'll be turning up the thermostat. Heat is building to the west and some humidity will sneak back into the picture again - not to the tune of anything we saw in July, but certainly some tangible change.

Question becomes whether or not we'll see a heat wave in the coming days. Definitely not a slam-dunk. We'll be marginally hot and only 'near' or 'around' 90 all three days in Greater Boston. Not breaking any records or melting any thermometers.

A cool front on Thursday is our only 'hope' for rain this week. It's been relatively dry, so some lawns and gardens will need a watering. And with the looks of the extended forecast


may need another good soaking this weekend.

Enjoy and relax!

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.
