So So Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

How bout' them Sox?  A day after a blowout victory, now we look to game 2 late this afternoon, and look for the dry weather as well. 

The dry weather we can do as well as any early morning sprinkles/passing showers taper off, leaving dry air in their wake.  The shower threat is low this afternoon, and most locations stay dry, including Fenway Park.  It won't be a bright and beautiful afternoon as more clouds rule the sky, but an occasional break of sunshine and temps running in the mid to upper 60s, allows for a decent day at the Fens, the golf course or the local pumpkin patch or apple orchard.

As a warm front to our south tries to move north, a few more batches of showers run along it, and move through our area late overnight tonight and tomorrow morning.  They'll be scattered, but the chance is there.  That chance for showers lowers for the afternoon and overall, it's a cooler day with temps in the low to mid 60s.   I wouldn't call Sunday a washout, as we'll have dry times around as well, but the shower chance is higher than today. 

Monday, that warm front snaps north of us, and as southerly winds kick in, so does more humid air and warmer temps.  Highs Monday reach the mid to upper 70s.  They'll be a passing shower at times through the day, but the soaking rains hold off until overnight and on Tuesday as a cold front barrels in here with the remnants of what is tropical storm Karen now. 

Behind it, we dry out for Wednesday, and could have another several days of dry weather strung together again.

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.
