Busy, Busy 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 ok 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 Friday.

The worst of the weekend weather will be today as early morning sunshine fades out thanks to low level moisture dragging in clouds from our northeast. With enough moisture in place, we'll even wring out the occasional drizzle/mist. Factor in the combination of that cloud cover, patchy drizzle and a strengthening NE breeze, and we'll have a blustery day overall, especially at the coast.  Temps near 60 by late morning, only to fall back into the mid to upper 50s mid to late afternoon.  We'll hold in the lower to mid 50s for the Sox game tonight.  We don't have to worry about a rain delay or rain out, but there still could be patchy mist during the game.

By daybreak tomorrow, any low level moisture pushes west and south of us on, allowing for brighter skies for both Sunday and Monday. Heading to Fenway tomorrow?  Again, it'll be in the mid 50s, but this go around, the breeze won't be as strong, and there will be no mist in the air.  Gillette tailgating looks great too with afternoon temps running in the lower to mid 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.
