Step Forward....Then Backward

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The fall preview has packed its bags and is being escorted out of New England. Those clouds, sprinkles and brief showers are showing the crisp,cool air the door (whether we like it or not). No worries Fall lovers, that crisp dry air will return in a few days.

Today, tomorrow and Thursday will be turn back the clock weather as we have humidity, heat and even the risk of some severe t-storms Thursday evening. Today it's just easing back into the summer theme with a few isolated showers this morning and slowly building humidity through the day. I think we will see intervals of sunshine--more so this afternoon.

Tomorrow it's all about the heat with many towns reaching the lower 90s by afternoon. It will also be hazy & humid. Despite the heat & humidity, I think the radar will be sleepy with little to no thunderstorm activity. That will change late in the day Thursday as a cool front crawls into New England. Much of the daylight hours on Thursday will be storm-free but after 5pm and for much of the evening there will be scattered storms. Some of those storms will be severe and the risk of storms will be elevated for the Patriots-Jets game.

Normally a front of this strength would blast through here & be long gone by Friday morning but this one has to wait for some meteorological traffic.....T.S. Gabrielle. She is no threat to New England (passing well east of us) but she will prevent that front from moving fast...so.....Friday is a change from yesterday with mostly cloudy skies & scattered showers for much of the day. The cool idea from yesterday does remain in place.

As of now, the weekend looks partly sunny & pleasant.

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.
