A Change Is Near

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

It has been an amazing fall thus far, essentially dry & mild for several weeks. Unfortunately, all things (good or bad) come to an end. We have two days left of this warm pattern and then we will advance the pattern so it behaves more like November (sans the snow).

The next two days will offer up some nice mild weather for the afternoon hours with many cities & towns reaching the upper 60s under a mostly sunny sky. You will notice a few more clouds in the sky tomorrow afternoon and those clouds mark our (ever) changing weather patterns. It's a cool front and it will crawl through New England late tomorrow night. In fact, it will be moving so slow that the mild air lingers for much of tomorrow night with lows only near 50.

So we start Wednesday near 50--awesome right? Well no, as the chilly air quickly takes over and the temps will hover near 50 for much of the morning and then actually begin to fall through the 40s during the afternoon. To add insult to injury will be a cloudy sky with a batch of light rain from late Wednesday morning through late afternoon. It should be noted that in scenarios, like the one on Wednesday, can and have produced some light wet snow----case in point Sunday October 18th, 2009---it snowed across much of SE Mass (anyone remember Wes Welker making snow angels in the endzone at Gillette against the Tennessee Titans?!--Haha). I'm not saying this will happen but rather something that we will watch during the day on Wednesday. As of now though, plan on a chilly light rain that will taper off an hour or two before the Red Sox-Cardinals game. For the game itself plan on cloudy, cool & raw conditions with temps in the mid 40s. Go Sox!

The remainder of the week will be sunny but chilly with morning lows in the low 30s and afternoon highs between 50-55.

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.
