The Beat Goes On As Monday's Storm Is Mainly Off

Posted by Chris Lambert

Starting to feel like we live in SoCal lately as our San Diego-like weather continues (we even had low level clouds off the ocean yesterday thanks to the marine layer). 

Anyhow, near perfect weather this afternoon transitions into a mainly clear evening and overnight as temperatures once again fall back into the 40s in the burbs and the lower 50s in the city.  

With high pressure the main influence over New England again tomorrow, I expect similar weather with highs in the mid 60s at the coast to lower 70s inland.  

So what about Monday?  The track of an ocean storm we're watching looks too far east to impact us in a major way.  Sure, we'll see more clouds, maybe a stray sprinkle or shower near the coast or Cape, but it's mainly a dry day with an active northeast to north breeze allowing for a bit of a chill to the air, especially over the Cape/Islands.  Highs stay in the 60s.   

As that storm pulls away, winds turn back out of the west by midweek as highs head toward 80 on Wednesday!  We'll remain fairly warm Thursday and Friday (mid to upper 70s) as well, although sea breezes keep it a bit cooler at the coast. 

The next best chance for widespread rain won't come until next weekend as a strong cold front ends our warmer weather.  I wouldn't rule out that front having some tropical moisture infused in it as well as the Gulf of Mexico may become active next week.  Moisture from whatever entity that forms there next week will likely get pulled north along the front.  The timing of the front appears to favor late Saturday/Saturday night, but we're still far out at this point. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

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.
