Simmer Down

Posted by Pete Bouchard

What a winner!!

Sun went to work early this morning thanks to a steady westerly breeze. That gave us a jump on the day and resulted in a fine summer redux:

I won't say this is the last time we'll see the 80s for the season (year), but they'll certainly be exceptional from here on out. 70s are another matter. If we stay on the warm side of things, we could even see them in December - as we have in years past.

Fear not, they're back tomorrow with a good supply of sun. Clouds will approach though as a front remains stalled overhead.

Typically, this front would mean a good chance of rain and some gloomy times ahead. However, this time around, the atmosphere is a little short on moisture. The end result? Just a few spotty, passing showers or sprinkles. Oh, and a whole lotta clouds.

Temperatures continue their slide into the weekend. Highs will struggle to meet 70 both Friday and Saturday thanks to the clouds and onshore wind.

All in all, a whole lot of indecision: no soaking rain, and not a lot of sun.

It's never too early to get it going, so.....


...GOOOO SOOOOOOOOOOOOX!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
