Not Too Much to Say

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Cool morning turns to a mild afternoon. The temperature turnaround was almost as remarkable as the streak we're on.

A 40+ degree turnaround in some towns! That speaks to the dry air in place. Drier air allows for steep drops/rises in temperatures. Muggy air likes to insulate and keep the heat around.

Speaking of, it's been so dry lately that I think many of us will be sensitive to the small climb in humidity late this week. Southwest winds will bring in a bit of moist air, and eventually it will spell showers on Sunday.

In the meantime, it's all about sun and mild temperatures. Normal highs are in the low 70s, but we'll do better than that tomorrow:

So get out, relax and get ready to rate those beards under that full Harvest Moon tonight...

...GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!

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:


*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'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.
