Defrost Mode

Posted by Chris Lambert

It was the first time this year I let the car warm up before I drove off this morning.  I'm sure many of you that were up and at em early this morning did the same as a thick frost greeted us this morning as temps fell well into the 20s.  In fact, Norwood hit 20 degrees, and mid 20s were common for many areas.

So obviously, we've changed the pattern for the colder, but not the wetter.  Mainly dry conditions prevail this weekend as highs head into the mid to upper 50s.  Clouds do increase this afternoon, and the wind is active out of the southwest, gusting 25-30mph.  The only chance for a spotty light shower or sprinkle is overnight tonight before more sun returns tomorrow.  Highs Sunday once again reach the mid to upper 50s.

So, 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.

Long range, Halloween looks mainly dry and mild with temps near 60.  We'll be well into the 60s Friday before a late-day or evening cold front brings rain across the area.

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.
