Cool At Times, But Bright

Posted by Chris Lambert

The last full weekend in August comes in with lots of sunshine as well as a noticeable change in the atmosphere as the low humidity and clear skies have allowed many of the suburbs to start the morning off near 50 on this Saturday. 

With lots of sunshine in place, the dry air warms up nicely inland, as high top off in the upper 70s there.  Along the coast, an onshore breeze develops, holding beach temps in the lower 70s.  In fact, across the Cape, an active northeasterly breeze at 15-20mph keeps highs near 70 in the sand and with low humidity in place, it's goose bump weather coming out of the ocean as that water quickly evaporates of the body and cools you down quick.

With a clear sky and dry air mass in place, temps tonight tumble.  Most suburbs fall into the mid to upper 40s, with lows in the city in the upper 50s.  Heading to Country Fest?  5PM temps are around 75 with a tumble to 61 by 9PM. 

Sunday is a beauty with inland highs in the lower 80s and coastal temps in the mid 70s.  It'll be a bit of a warmer beach day as temps are several degrees higher and winds a bit lighter.

So when will it rain?  The dry weather has been great for outdoor activities, but the gardens and lawns could use some water.  We'll be able to track a few showers and storms in here late Monday, again on Tuesday as they are hit or miss across the area, and again on Wednesday afternoon/evening as more energy arrives with a cool front late in the day.

Have a great 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:

*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.
