A Danish..A Donut...A Cloud

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

They say a donut with no holes is a danish.....a cloud on the ground is fog. We have another cloud on the ground this morning and, like yesterday, will lift and fade away by mid morning. The week features the same pattern we had last week---dry. High pressure hasn't moved much since last Friday and that means more dry weather for the next several days.

There is some storminess on the maps this morning and even though this storminess is out over the ocean, the storm will provide a northeast wind here in New England. That means most towns will have high temps in the 60s--coolest along the coast . As we step toward tomorrow that ocean storm no longer has an influence on our wind direction--in fact--a westerly breeze will commence. that westerly breeze will boost temps into the lower 70s by afternoon. By Wednesday, the warming trend will continue with many towns into the low 80s!

That 80 degree weather on Wednesday will be classic fall warmth---a dry warmth but by Friday, the humidity will make a return and making it feel like late summer weather. My window AC units are out. Oh well.

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.
