Cooler 2nd Half

Posted by Chris Lambert

We did alright for ourselves on this first half of the weekend as any early morning showers tapered off, and dry weather prevailed.  It wasn't a perfect day, but we did catch a few breaks of sun, and combined with comfortable temps, the weather worked out just fine for outdoors plans.

So can we do the same for Sunday?  Not quite.  I don't want to couch the 2nd half of the weekend a washout, but we'll deal with some scattered showers around.  The best chance for them will be the farther north and west you go, and they tend to favor the morning vs. the afternoon.  South of the Pike, the afternoon looks rather dry, although highs hold in the low to mid 60s there.  North of the Pike, a shower or sprinkle still can't be rule out in the afternoon, but you'll find some dry hours in there too.  The cloud cover is solid Sunday, and areas north of the Pike hover in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Monday, as southerly winds kick in, so does more humid air and warmer temps.  Highs Monday reach the mid 70s.  They'll be a passing shower at times through the day, but the soaking rains hold off until overnight, into early Tuesday as a cold front barrels in here with some of the remnants of what is Tropical Storm Karen now. 

Behind it, we dry out for Tuesday afternoon, and as high pressure anchors in, another dry stretch of weather settles in for at least several days.

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:


*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'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.
