Lowering The Humidity

Posted by Chris Lambert

You may need to throw some water on the lawn or in the garden since we won't see much rain around here the next several days.   I'm sure for most, that works out just fine through the weekend as we have more nice weather in store.

Today is transition day as northwest winds turn northeast, allowing for a cooler afternoon, especially at the coast where temps stay in the mid to upper 70s.  Inland temps reach the lower 80s, however, with that northerly component to the wind, the humidity does turn lower.  All and all, it's a pretty good day with just enough instability to trigger a spot brief shower or sprinkle amid many dry hours.

High pressure to our west continues to drive in cooler and less humid air into southern New England through the first half of the weekend, allowing for a September-like Saturday.  Highs hold in the upper 70s inland, and only in the low to mid 70s at the coast thanks to a north to northeast wind.  That wind will be active across SE Mass, so it may feel a bit cool at the beach across the Cape and Islands.  

That high settles over us on Sunday, allowing for a beauty of a day with highs near 80, blue skies and light sea breezes kicking in.  Sunday will be a bit warmer of the two days down the Cape, upper 70s then with a light breeze.

Next chance Mother Nature waters the lawn won't show up until Tuesday.

Enjoy the weekend!

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.
