Cool, But Still Dry

Posted by Chris Lambert

With midday clouds strolling on through, the lack of sunshine didn't help us out much today as highs struggled to crack the 50 degree mark. 

The cool day set's the stage for a chilly overnight tonight.  In fact, frost advisories and freeze warnings are posted for coastal communities and even for the Boston Metro area as temperatures drop into the 30s tonight.  Mid 30s ought to do it for much of the Boston area with the frost advisory in place, and near 30 for the North Shore and South Shore where the freeze warning is up.  What about inland?  No advisories or warnings, but that's because we've seen frosty temps before and the growing season is generally over.  It'll be plenty cold inland with lows in the upper 20s to 30.

So we've changed the pattern for the colder, but not the wetter.  Dry conditions prevail this weekend as highs head into the mid to upper 50s.  Clouds increase Saturday afternoon, and decrease Sunday morning, but overall, no rain.  The windier of the two days is Saturday, as SW winds gust in the afternoon 25-30+mph.

Enjoy the weekend and go Sox and go Pats!  Tailgating weather at Gillette runs in the 50s with mostly sunny skies.  If you're heading to St. Louis... game time temps there are in the 50s.

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.
