Series of Cool Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Day one of the cool pattern. I must admit, I overdressed and felt a little warm this morning. Plenty more opportunities to get it right in the days ahead.

First off, what about all this evening rain in SE Mass?

Don't sweat it, that northernmost line from Plymouth to Swansea hasn't moved an inch in the last three hours. It's not a player in the Sox forecast or in the overnight hours for Greater Boston or Worcester.

I'm torn over this. Certainly don't want rain for the Sox, but we need it badly. Tonight is our only opportunity for a mediocre soaking in the next 7 days.

Tomorrow dawns bright and cold, but the clouds will billow up in the afternoon. Gusty winds will chill to the bone if you're outside - a major change of pace from our somewhat still/quiet weather of late.

Some slight moderation in the temperatures is expected this weekend as the wind turns more southwest. Showers should stay out of the picture both days as a weak weather system runs out of gas across New England.

On the edge of my seat over the game....

...Goooooooooooooo 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.
