It's Been A While

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

It's been about a month since we've had some real summertime heat & humidity. August temps have been running 1-2 below normal with Worcester yet to see a high temp in the 80s and Boston only seeing the thermometer reach 85 twice---quite the turnaround compared to July. The jet stream is the reason as it has been pinned south of New England for a few weeks now. That changes today.

Plan on warm temps as most cities & towns reach the upper 80s--even close to 90 for some. I do think there will be a sea breeze so coastal cities/towns will briefly reach the upper 80s but for much of the afternoon those temps will be in the low to mid 80s. Also on the increase will be humidity. It won't be pure tropical air like we saw back in July but it will definitely feel more humid than recent days/weeks. Similar weather is on tap for Wednesday. Next two days a great for the beaches.

On Thursday the humidity will peak making it the most uncomfortable day of the bunch. Temps will also add to the discomfort with afternoon highs reaching the upper 80s. Clouds will be on the increase and so will the chance for late day/evening thunderstorms. These thunderstorms are tied to a cool front and that front will do its thing by Friday sweeping the heat & humidity out of New England.

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.
