Making It Great

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Even with the stubborn fog this morning, we had a superb weekend. Dry air in place, tons of (afternoon) blue and light breezes.

Question becomes, when does the shoe drop?

I don't think it's going to. Without any storms or real cold brewing, Mother Nature is still barefooted. What I do see is more warm air building into the middle of the week, and only a minor cooldown late week.

First off, the fog. It reforms tonight and will be quite dense in the morning.

 

If you travel before sunup, keep in mind that Dense Fog Advisories mean visibilities will be just beyond your front bumper. Give yourself plenty of room and time behind the car in front of  you...if you can even see it. Be careful!

Sun should chew away at the fog by afternoon. (Yeah, it may take that long in spots.) It'll be pleasant with highs in the mid 60s.

We'll make a run at the 80 degree mark by midweek as warm air moves in, and even with a cooldown by Friday we'll still be in the upper 70s.

Enjoy 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:

*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.
