Back to 2004

Posted by Chris Lambert

Ready for game 1 tonight?  The match-up in the series is the same as '04 and the weather at Fenway Park looks similar to that of game 1 and 2 of 2004.  Hopefully, the outcome to those two games look similar too!

Not only do we have the cooler weather in place today, we'll also track a bit of rain across the area this afternoon.  The best chance of a steady rain later today is across southeast Mass, especially around Buzzards Bay the Cape and Islands.  Even a touch of rain or sprinkles mid to late afternoon find their way close to the Mass Pike and the city of Boston, although rain amounts remain light.  Highs only manage to reach the low to mid 50s, and where in does rain this afternoon, temps fall back into the mid 40s across SE Mass.

So what about the Sox game?  If you're heading into Fenway around 5:00 or 6:00PM, there still could be a shower or a few sprinkles around, but the chance for those rain drops really lower by first pitch as mostly cloudy skies prevail, and temps hover in the mid to upper 40s for the start of the game, and end in the lower to middle 40s by the 9th. 

Tomorrow afternoon, there's no rain chance, but cool weather continues to be the theme, and temps at the Fens will be chilly.  Game 2 starts in the mid 40s, drops to the lower 40s.  Add in a gusty wind, and wind chill factors run into the 30s!

Cooler weather rules from here on out, but so does mainly dry weather.  Aside from that bit of rain today (mainly south), and a sprinkle or brief passing shower early Sunday, we're dry through the weekend, into early next week.

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:


*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'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.
