Stretching The Streak

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Pats are on a roll, and so is the weather.

Turned out to be a fine afternoon after some bumps in the road this morning. Breezes were just enough to keep the wind stirred and keep many of us near 70. But those winds also have been blowing down plenty of cool air, and we'll feel it tonight and the first half of the week.

Temperatures tonight will chill right down to the low and mid 40s for most (the city should be right around 50, however). And this will be one of a string of cool nights to signal the start of astronomical fall.

But that's almost a sidebar (and a given for the season). What's bigger is this fine streak of sunny days. If you take early Sunday out of the mix, we've been on a tear for the last week plus. And with another mighty high pressure system parking itself over New England, I'm looking at at least 7 days without a shower threat. (And slowly moderating temps.)


Make the most of the workweek.

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.
