Step In The Right Direction

Posted by Chris Lambert

Well, it wasn't perfect all day, but certainly better than the damp weather of yesterday.  The only issue we had today was a 3-5 hour batch of low clouds that managed to form around midday.  It actually cleared out quite nicely in most of eastern Mass, allowing what sun we had this morning, to come back by early to mid afternoon.  Deep inland, the clearing has been much slower, but least we didn't have pockets of mist to deal with.

Gradual clearing deep inland continues late-day, into this evening, and those clearer skies allows temps to drop off overnight.  Heading to Fenway?  First pitch temps hover near 55 with end of the game numbers closer to 50.  By tomorrow morning, the city of Boston starts off in the mid to upper 40s, with many of the burbs in the mid to upper 30s.  In fact, northwest Middlesex County and northern Worcester County are under a frost advisory from 3:00-9:00AM Monday.  A few low 30s could show up there, but no hard freeze is expected.

A mix of clouds and sun and a southeasterly breeze warms us back into the mid 60s tomorrow, and in the upper 60s by Tuesday.

A few showers are possible Wednesday, but there a better chance of rain arrives Thursday afternoon/Thursday night.  Behind that system, we should dry out and cool down a bit to end the week and head into next weekend.

Go Pats & Sox!

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.
