Fairly Quiet Stretch

Posted by Chris Lambert

Another dry weekend goes into the books as sunshine helped warm many of us into the lower 70s this Sunday afternoon.  That sun, did fade a bit at times thanks to a few batches of mid to high level clouds working in from the west, in advance of a cold front. 

That front provides a few scattered showers to the area tomorrow, but it will not be a washout. The atmosphere in place is dry, so I expect the cold front to have limited moisture to work with.  Instead of seeing tropical downpours fire like parts of the area had last week, there will only be hit and miss showers that are mainly light.  Perhaps just enough to wet the ground at times, but most locations pick up less than 0.10" of rain.  Clouds limit the sun, but occasional breaks in the overcast are good enough to get us into the upper 60s.

Behind the front, a chilly and bone dry air mass settles in for Tuesday as dew points drop into the 20s and highs struggle to get into the lower 60s.  With winds out of the north to northeast, the coolest locations will be along the coast, with highs around 60, and the warmest locations in Metrowest with highs near 64.

With a clear sky and low humidity air mass in place, Tuesday nights a chilly one with temps falling back into the middle to upper 30s for many of the blurbs.  It's a nice rebound Wednesday though with highs near 70.

We'll do just fine for ourselves through the end of the week with highs well into the 70s and dry weather in place.

There are some questions regarding the timing of the next cold front for us for next weekend.  That front produces showers in what looks like a late Saturday to early Sunday timeframe as of now, but this far out, that timing is subject to change.  I wouldn't go rewriting the the weekend planner just yet, give us a couple days to iron out the details. 

Hope you had a good weekend and enjoy the Fall weather ahead.

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.
