Fog To Sun, Pattern Stays Dry

Posted by Chris Lambert

Dense stuff huh?  That fog is like pea soup in spots this morning, and because of that, a dense fog advisory is in place for much of eastern Mass until 9:00AM.  The moisture is confined close to the ground, in fact, this morning it was quite the view on top of the Prudential Center with sunshine at the top and an undercast covering the city below.

Where locally dense fog hasn't formed, the skies are bright once again with sunshine winning out.  All of us will see the sunshine win out this afternoon as highs head up into the low to mid 60s at the coast and the upper 60s to 70 inland. 

So what about Monday?  The track of an ocean storm we've been 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 Cape or Nantucket, 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.  The farther north and west you go, the warmer it is and the more sunshine you'll have. Highs stay in the 60s.   

As that storm pulls away, winds turn back out of the west by midweek as highs head toward and above 80 on Wednesday!  We'll remain fairly warm through the end of the week, into next weekend too (mid 70s to near 80).

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.
