Great 2nd Half

Posted by Chris Lambert

Some midday clouds were around to blotch out the sunshine for many, but overall, it was a decent day with dry conditions and low humidity to start the weekend.  Those instability clouds we have in the day fade fast near sunset, allowing for clear skies and a cool overnight as the numbers fall into the 40s in the suburbs and stay in the 50s in the city.

Clear skies tonight also sets the stage for lots of sunshine and a great 2nd half of the weekend tomorrow. With a more stable atmosphere in place, clouds won't bubble up midday to block the sun.  Apples orchards and golf courses will be bright, so don't forget the sunscreen!  With more sunshine and a wind out of the west to southwest, it's also warmer with highs in the lower to middle 70s.  Enjoy!  Temps are still in the upper 60s at Fenway for Sunday Night Baseball as the Sox look to sweeps the Yanks.

A cold front comes in Monday, providing a few scattered, mainly light showers as highs hold in the upper 60s.  Behind that front, it's a chilly one Tuesday with morning lows in the upper 30s in most suburbs and highs only in the mid 60s. 

We warm a bit to end the week, but we'll also bring in the chance of more showers starting Friday afternoon.

In the tropics, Ingrid has become the 2nd hurricane this season as she turns in the western Gulf of Mexico.  It's expected to continue a northerly drift the next 1-2 days before sliding west into Tampico, Mexico.  Widespread heavy rain certainly could be an issue for eastern  Mexico with a threat for flooding a concern.

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.
