Winning

Posted by Chris Lambert

Yikes! That was a close one, but the Pats pulled it off and a win is a win.  We certainly won out this weekend in the weather department as well as comfortable weather settled in and temps were just a smidge above seasonable levels over the past couple of days. 

Temps WILL NOT be above seasonal levels tonight.  As clear skies, light winds, and a low humidity Canadian air mass settles in, the mercury drops.  In fact, you can already feel the change in the air late this afternoon as temperatures start to slide.  By daybreak Monday, many of the suburbs are in the upper 30s and lower 40s.  The city holds near 50.  We'll recover to about 70 tomorrow afternoon with lots of sunshine.

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.  Bottom line, don't take that A/C unit out of the window 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. 

In the meantime, in the tropics, Tropical Depression #9 has formed just off the African coast.  It's forecasted to become a hurricane on Wednesday, September 11th.  It's no threat to the United States, however, if it fails to become a hurricane on, or before Wednesday, it'll mark the longest we've gone into a hurricane season, without a hurricane developing, since the satellite era begin in 1960.

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.
