Wow! Just Wow.

Posted by Chris Lambert

In a game that seemed like the small ball mistakes would cost us, it was the biggest of the long balls that won it.  After all, what team needs to efficiently bunt when you can just hit grand slams?  Now we're World Series bound, and it feels great!

With the adrenaline of last night still running, it'll be a fantastic Fall day in New England.  The only downside I can find is the wind.  It will be active out of the west, gusting to 25-30mph.  Temps run from the upper 50s in the hilly terrain of Worcester County to the lower to middle 60s closer to the coast.

Tomorrow and Tuesday, the mild October weather continues as highs reach the mid to upper 60s.  There's just a slight risk of a late-day shower Tuesday, otherwise, we have to wait until Wednesday for a better chance of rain.

Wait, what... rain for the Series?  Well, not quite.  Wednesday's rain falls during the day as showers move in.   It's just a glancing shot from a developing ocean storm, and it appears to dry out just in time for Game 1.  Game 1 temps hover in the mid 40s.  Game 2 is a cool and dry one with temps in the mid to lower 40s.

That cooler pattern sticks for the rest of the month, so enjoy the milder weather now! 

Go Pats and go 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:

*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.
