Eventually.... Changes Ahead

Posted by Chris Lambert

After a warm and dry October, finally, we start to see some changes in the forecast as cooler air makes it's way into the eastern half of the United States.  However, that change will take a while to get in here, so until then, enjoy as the relatively mild mid October weather continues for now.

We'll have another nice one today as temperatures reach the middle to upper 60s.  Sunshine fades this afternoon, but it remains dry through the day.  Tonight, we'll track a few scattered showers in here (best chance in the 10:00PM-3:00AM timeframe), but even these showers look to be on the lighter side.  Heading out to Fenway?  Temps hover in the mid to upper 50s this evening, and I can't rule out a passing shower or two.  Prolonged rain delays or a rain-out is unlikely though.  Have fun and go Sox!

Those spotty showers are long gone by Sunday morning, and it's back to the sunshine as drier air builds back in on a west to northwest wind.  That wind will be quite active too, gusting near 30mph at times.  Highs are just slightly cooler.... low to mid 60s.

So where are the changes?  We'll start to transition into a cooler pattern on Wednesday as cold air builds in the eastern 2/3rds of the country.  Highs may struggle to hit 50 by the end of next week, and it looks like the colder set-up has some staying power through the end of the month as the 50s become more common than the 60s and 70s we've enjoyed.

Have fun this weekend!

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.
