What Happened to October?

Posted by Chris Lambert

First off... what a game last night!  Here's to hoping for the repeat tonight.   Weather-wise, it'll be close to a repeat.  That means temps in the upper to mid 40s this evening at Fenway.  The difference tonight, the wind is stronger and that means wind chills fall into the 30s during the game.  Bundle up and have fun as it'll feel more like a November game at Gillette.

Overall, it seems like we've gone from September weather to November weather here with that abrupt transition the last couple of days.  The first 22 days of October averaged close to 68 degrees for the high in Boston (typical late September numbers).  The last 2 days have average 53, more like mid November.

So what happened to October weather?  The amplified pattern across the United States has created either unseasonably warm weather or unseasonably cool weather across the country depending on location.  For us, we were in the warm side of the pattern for awhile, but now the cold air is winning on out here, and now winning in a large part of the county. 

I don't see much change over the next several days, although at times, the breeze won't be as strong and highs migrate toward the middle to upper 50s, which by late October, is actually close to the average.  Rain chances are slim pickings the next 5 days, but there could be some showers by Wednesday and/or Thursday of next week.  Check back in on that... don't want to call Halloween a rainy one this far out, so that's a forecast we'll work on pinning down over the next several days.

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.
