Status Quo

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Back at it with much the same as previous days/weeks. Hard to believe that October is half over already?! (side note--about ready to load up the iPhone with the holiday tunes) The first half of the month has been warm---temps have been running about 5 degrees above normal-- while precipitation has been sparse (Most towns running about an inch below normal in rainfall).

There are signs of a pattern change down the road as waaaayyy out in the Pacific a typhoon named "Wipha" heads for the north Pacific. When these typhoons do that they have a downstream effect on the jet stream across North America, buckling the jet stream in a fashion that sends cold, Canadian air into the United States. This looks like it will happen in about a week-10 days.

Until that jet stream buckles look for more decent weather with a mix of sun & clouds & seasonal temps--both day & night. Our next chance of rain won;t happen until a cool front (not from Canada) sweeps through New England Friday Morning with showers. More dry weather is on tap for the upcoming weekend! Enjoy!

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.
