You Sank My Sunshine Battleship

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

When looking at the 4am observation out at Logan airport this morning, I saw:  64   63  96% E9. Focus on that E9....it's the wind direction and speed at the airport. Anytime you have an east wind you can plan on cool conditions and sometimes that also means clouds & fog. That "sometimes" is today. Poo. Now that we are at the tail end of summer also means that east wind has a stronger influence compared to early July. So you you folks well inland can also plan on mainly cloudy skies as cool conditions. Most towns will reach the lower 70s inland while coastal locations won't make it out of the 60s. There will be a few pockets of drizzle & or sprinkles thorugh the day but otherwise, it's mainly dry.

Tomorrow that wind switches back to the southwest and that means a return to summer with mainly sunny skies & temps back up near 80. Great beach day. Time to share......*IF* you have the flexibility, take tomorrow off from work instead of Monday as the pattern begins to break down as we roll into the holiday weekend.

A cool front will crawl through the northeast this upcoming holiday weekend. Western & northern New England will see the showers first on Saturday afternoon, eastern New England early Sunday and much of New England on Labor Day. As of now, I think only Labor Day runs the risk of being washed out. The other two days will offer plenty of dry weather with just a few showers. More on the specifics tomorrow.

Peace.

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.
