Send Out The Clouds

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

How does one blog about strato-cumulus clouds? I dunno---let's find out....

Yup, it's that quiet where the weather blog will detail a clump of clouds that came drifting into southern New England yesterday afternoon and are still with us this morning. No worries as these clouds will continue their southerly drift over the next few hours allowing sunshine to return by afternoon. At one time, these clouds had some raindrops in the mix but not the case today---they'll just wipe out the chance of early morning solar glare. the clouds also prevented another chilly morning and by afternoon, with sunshine around, most towns reach the upper 60s.

More sunshine is in order tomorrow and right into the weekend as high pressure stays with us. As we step into the weekend a warming trend begins but no worries--those window AC's don;t need to go back in....this time of year a warming trend means afternoon highs in the 70s with low humidity.

There was some chatter by yours truly of a storm on the east coast early next week.....that chatter will now stop as a storm will form but likely several hundred miles offshore. Soooo.......more sunshine on tap for several days next week.

Water those mums.

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.
