Changes Are Afoot

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Depending on where you were, it was either drab or stunning today. Check out SE Mass. in this picture:

That was sheer blue sky. And the temperatures responded in kind. Highs hit the lower 70s around greater Taunton! That is the warmest it will be...

...until Thursday.

Three separate weather systems will affect us in the next three days, but it's not what you think. All of them will be weak, they'll only occupy a small part of the day, and the temperatures will only sag a bit heading into the weekend.

Typically in these setups, the weather maps have a hard time pacing the systems out. This time, however, I think they have a good hold of the situation. Each morning will have a slightly greater chance at a shower.

Once this volley of weather systems passes, we'll mellow out for the weekend with a good show of clouds on Saturday, and a brighter Sunday forecast.

Later next week, the REAL cold may ride into town. Details to follow, but it's looking like sweaters, hats and gloves will be the order of the day(s).

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.
