Weather Whiplash

Posted by Chris Lambert

The average high this time of year is about 75 degrees.  We'll be close to that today,  but the numbers are all over the place on the rest of the 7day forecast. 

Let's start with today.  Partly sunny skies extend through early afternoon, with a tendency to go mostly sunny mid to late afternoon.  As a cool front comes through midday, it could force out a late morning/lunch-time sprinkle or brief shower in a few towns (highest chance SE Mass), but I wouldn't count on rain changing your outdoor plans. Winds turn to the northwest this afternoon, and that northwest wind ushers in much cooler air for tonight.   Highs do reach the mid 70s today, but that's around 2:00PM, after that, the numbers start to slide with an active NW wind.  Overnight lows fall to the upper 30s in the coolest suburbs to near 50 in the city.

Tomorrow is a bight, but cool day with highs only near 70.

We'll shake the cool weather off by mid-week as mid-summer heat and humidity build in.  Highs surge past 90 on Wednesday with hazy sun and dew points well into the 60s.  Don't take that A/C unit out quite yet!

Thunderstorms breaks the heat and humidity on Thursday, some of which could be strong, so we'll have to watch for that set-up when the time comes.

By Friday and Saturday, it's back to much cooler weather with highs by next Saturday not getting out of the 60s.

Hey, it's transition time here in New England and that means a lot of back and forth.

Go Pats!!!!!

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.
