Time For Something New

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nearly 2 weeks. That's how long it's been since we've seen rain and it has become quite dry. So much so, that the drought monitor branch of the National Weather Service has tagged metro Boston is the lowest drought status....*abnormally dry*. Don;t get me wrong---I'm not rooting for rain on a Friday morning but we could use some.

That's all it will be today is some rain mainly in the form of isolated showers & sprinkles. The window of opportunity for the raindrops will be from 10am-4pm and again...isolated means some of you will cruise through that raindrop window without feeling any rain. The clouds & rain threat will keep temps in the upper 60s/low 70s. That Sox game will feature clouds--a sprinkle or two and some great starting pitching. Go Sox!

The weekend offers much the same as the weather system today (stalled warm front) will be with us again tomorrow and Sunday. Both days will average out mostly cloudy but dry. A brief sprinkle is possible at any time both days. We will be on the cool side of this front over the weekend so plan on temps in the upper 60s tomorrow & again on Sunday.

As we step into next week some beneficial rainfall is possible Monday evening-Tuesday morning as leftover tropical moisture from storm Karen sweeps across New England.

Have a great 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.
