Quick Bounce To Perfection

Posted by Chris Lambert

Did you feel that chill this morning?  It certainly didn't feel like summer around sunrise as the Vineyard hit 42 degrees while it was 44 in Taunton, and 46 in Norwood, Orange and Falmouth.   No worries though, it's a fast recovery as temperatures head into the upper 70s and lower 80s this afternoon thanks to the dry air mass in place and a lot of sunshine. 

Sea breezes do kick in at the coast, so temps max out in the upper 70s at the beach, then fall back into the lower 70s mid to late afternoon as those onshore breezes win out. 

Thin clouds that mix in this afternoon become thicker overnight tonight as a complex of showers and thunderstorm near New England by daybreak tomorrow.  While I don't expect an all day washout on Monday, I don expect some of those showers and storms to roll in here, providing needed water on some lawns and gardens.  I say some, because the rain will be scattered, about 40% of us getting wet.

Tuesday and Wednesday feature higher humidity, temps in the lower 80s and a few more showers and storms.  The lower threat of rain is Tuesday with the higher chance of storms Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening.

Behind the Wednesday PM front that brings in storms, we'll dry out for the end of the week.

So what about Labor Day Weekend?  I know, I know, it's far out, but the early indications are we start dry and cool Saturday (mid to upper 70s), reach the 80s on Sunday, and well into the 80s on Monday (maybe 90 if a front near New England stays well north of us).  We'll keep you updated, but for now, enjoy this perfect Sunday afternoon.

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.
