Quiet Holiday Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

Lots going on this weekend from the Sox at Fenway to the Pats at Gillette to hitting the local apple orchards and pumpkin patches.  Overall, the weather works out just fine for all of that, although at times, it'll be a bit on the cool side compare to the mid 60s to lower 70s we had today.

As high pressure builds into New England, we'll track a bit of moisture working in along an onshore flow tomorrow.  That moisture provides us with more clouds and even a passing sprinkle or patch of drizzle.  Combine a breeze that is active out of the NE, and we'll have a blustery day overall, especially at the coast.  Temps range from the upper 50s at the coast to low 60s inland. 

That high pushes any low level moisture west and south of us on Sunday, allowing for brighter skies and temps near 60 at the coast, low 60s inland.  Monday is brighter as well as highs reach the mid 60s.

Heading to Fenway?  Both nights feature temps in the mid 50s, although Saturday night feels a bit cooler with a stronger onshore breeze and more clouds around.

Gillette tailgating looks great Sunday with afternoon temps running in the lower 60s. 

The pattern warms a bit for the middle part of next week before a cold front brings in showers Thursday afternoon.

Enjoy the weekend and Go Sox and Pats!!!

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.
