Chilly Night, Beauty of A Sunday

Posted by Chris Lambert

What a day!  Low humidity and a lot of sunshine provided a great day for outdoor activities across all of New England.  If you were at the beach, I will say, it was cool, but hopefully you still had fun in the sand.  For the kids, it sometimes seems like the air temps are irrelevant as I'm sure many of them were running in and out of the water all day while you and I would shiver.

Anyhow, with the low humidity and clear skies tonight, temps tumble and tumble fast.  After sunset, it's off to the races to the downside as outside the city of Boston, temps reach the low 50s by midnight and low to mid 40s by sunrise on Sunday.  One characteristic of a dry air mass is that it cools down quickly at night and warms up quickly during the day, and we'll see that tomorrow.  Despite starting in the mid 40s in the burbs, we'll reach the lower 80s by mid afternoon there.  Even the city of Boston nears 80 before a sea breeze knocks temps back into the 70s.  I'd expect a light sea breeze and mid 70s if you're heading to the beach tomorrow.

While the dry weather has been great, we could use some water on the lawns at this point.  We should get a few cracks at that starting Monday with scattered showers around.  More scattered showers for Tuesday and also the risk for a few thunderstorms by Wednesday afternoon.  No days look like a washout at this point.

Dry weather again moves in to end the week and start next weekend. 

Enjoy your Sunday!

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.
