Seasonable

Posted by Chris Lambert

Is the ground wet?  Yes, indeed we had a bit of rain last night and early this morning, just enough to dampen the ground.  Only a few one hundredths of an inch of rain fell, but it's enough to create slippery spots where the leaves are wet.

Those spotty showers exit early this morning, allowing for a mix of sunshine and clouds throughout the day.  The breeze is active out of WNW, but not as strong as yesterday's.  It'll gust 20-25mph at times. 

Overall, it's great late October tailgating weather at Gillette as we "squish the fish!" (I know, mammal right? Work with me here, just a sayin').  Highs today reach the middle 50s for most.

Monday comes close to 60 before a cold front oozes through here at night.  That sets up a chilly Tuesday and Wednesday. On Wednesday, a weak disturbance slides through early with a passing flurry or a shower to start the day, but temps rebound to 50 by the afternoon.

Halloween right now looks mild with highs in the lower 60s!  Friday reaches the mid to upper 60s with a gusty southerly breeze and rain arriving in the afternoon.

Go Pats and Go Sox today!  Here's to hoping the rule book needs no explanations in either game.  My heart can't take anymore of it.

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.
