Slammed Shut

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

That's all she wrote folks. Summer 2013 (un-officially) closes down today and what a clunker of a way to end it. The weather system that drenched metrowest with 3-5" of rain yesterday hasn't moved much today so you can plan on more of the same----not to say that Natick will receive another 5" of rain but some locations will get pounded with some heavy downpours. Also like yesterday, there will be gaps inbetween the rain---perhaps even a peek of sun-- but overall an unsettled, humid finish to the holiday weekend.

Tuesday it's back to work & school but our pattern remains the same (much like the song does) and that means yet anther round of showers, t-storms & downpours scattered through the day. The chance of those downpours will lower by Tuesday afternoon. The humidity will also begin to drop off late in the day.

Wednesday will be our first great day this week with high pressure finally giving this front a bump out to sea. That front will also take the showers, downpours, t-storms and humidity out to sea. Plan on a big dose of sunshine with temps near 80. Cooler & drier air takes over for late week adding a nice touch of fall to the air on Friday as temps start in the 40s and briefly reach the low 70s.

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.
