Ups and Downs

Posted by Chris Lambert

Highs across the area reached the mid to upper 50s for most, which is seasonable for this time of year.  Despite being close to average today, the week ahead features a few ups and downs for sure as the mild air and the cold weather battle it out as we try to transition into the colder months ahead.

The new workweek begins with a nice day as highs head toward 60 degrees.  However, just lurking to our north is a cold front that'll knock the temps down substantially tomorrow night.  The Tuesday morning wake-up call features mid 20s in the burbs and mid 30s in the city.  It'll be another "warm-up the car" morning before the commute to work.  Despite some sunshine during the day, highs struggle to get out of the upper 40s. 

Wednesday is a cool one too, even a few flurries to scattered light showers are possible in the morning.  Highs reach 50 that day.

Trick or Treat?  A passing shower is possible as warm air transitions in Thursday, but overall, much the time is dry and breezy.  That wind picks up out of the south, becoming quite active at night.  Highs near 60 Thursday afternoon, and stay in the mid to upper 50s for the little ghosts and goblins running around.

Friday is the best chance for soaking showers and gusty winds.  It'll be a mild too, with temps in the mid 60s. 

We should clear out for next weekend.  Clocks go back 1 hour next Sunday morning and that means a 4:35 sunset Sunday afternoon. YIKES!!!

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.
