Threading The Needle

Posted by Chris Lambert

Like a Uehara pitch in the 9th, location and set-up are what count. 

For us in southern New England, Mother Nature plays ball as best she can for us as our location, and the current pattern set-up, help us out in avoiding most of the rain that'll surround the area.

Tonight, we watch most of the rain move just north of us, and just south of us.  The two batches of moisture won't phase into a bigger storm until it's well east of us, and that means we won't see a lot of rain out of either system.  However, there will be just enough moisture to throw out a few sprinkles and scattered light showers, but nothing to create long rain delays, cancelations or big puddles.  Up to just a few hundredths of an inch of rain fall in some towns, and that's just enough to dampen the ground at worst.  Bottom line... play ball and go Sox!  

This sprinkle/light shower talk is long gone by Sunday morning as sunshine returns and temps warm into the lower 60s for the afternoon.  The wind will crank out of the west, gusting 25-30mph at times.

Long range still looks much, MUCH cooler.  Wednesday is a close call with a coastal storm as a few showers could get in here for the afternoon and evening.  Highs Wednesday reach the mid 50s, but likely fall back into the 40s near days end. 

Thursday-Saturday feature dry weather, but highs struggle to hit 50 with overnight lows near 30. Yup... a downward trend for sure.

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.
