Meteorological Furniture

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

I'm convinced we'll have more mild days before we sing Auld Lang Syne but I doubt they will come in long stretches. The meteorological furniture in the atmospheric living room is being rearranged as I blog. A colder pattern will take hold and  likely stick for several days perhaps even a week or three.

In order for this new pattern to become a reality we will go through some weather the next couple of days. Today that "weather" is mainly in the form of clouds--especially late morning and the afternoon. There could be a few sprinkles in the Worcester Hills mid-late afternoon but otherwise it's dry. Despite all the clouds it's warm with many cities & towns in the upper 60s.

Tomorrow will be much colder. Simple as that. We will also have a mainly cloudy day and I do think there is going to be some rain from 10am until 4pm. As of now, the highest chance of the chilly rain will be south of the MA Pike (perhaps even south of highway 44 in Plymouth/Bristol counties). Dry weather expected north of the MA Pike. The temps will spend the entire day between 47-53. We get back to the sunshine by Thursday but that sun is now compromised here in late October. Most towns high afternoon highs only near 55.

As for the World Series, if the Sox hitters can continue to work pitch counts...oh wait....sorry, that's my inside voice......weather for both games will be chilly. Game temps will be in the lower 40s and a westerly breeze will make it feel like the upper 30s. Dry weather expected for both games. 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.
