High & Dry

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Meh, so they lost. At least it's Friday and like many other Friday's going back to early September this one is dry and that dry weekend theme will continue. It's another chilly day though with many towns starting in the 20s/30s. Most towns will struggle to reach the lower 50s by afternoon. To add insult to injury, clouds will fill up much of the sky throughout the day. The difference maker will be that wind--it was fiesty yesterday and it will be again for a few hours this morning but it will fade away during the afternoon. Plan on a chilly evening for the H.S football games.

As for the weekend, it does have a few issues but no raindrops or snowflakes will be mentioned here. We will deal with not one but two fronts. The first is a Warm Front that will do just that, warm us up (Jer)! Look for temps to start cold but make a nice recovery and reach the upper 50s by afternoon. Some of that milder air will be masked by a healthy southwesterly breeze for much of the day though. Also look for an increase in clouds. Decent day ahead.

Sunday it's the Cold Fronts turn and it's early too! That means we will start with some clouds (perhaps a sprinkle on the Cape/Islands) and then see mostly sunny skies. In terms of the temperatures with that front, no dramatic drops just shaving a few degrees off of the temp on Saturday. Looks great for the Patriots/Dolphins down at Gillette---squish the fish--err---mammal.

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.
