Taking Turns

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Some classic mid-fall weather over the next 7 days that will see us with lows in the 20s one day (a few days actually) and then downpours with temperatures in the 60s (Friday). That polar jet stream is beginning to wake up while the sub-tropical jet stream is also about to get busy--when they get together, it's snow shovel time but that's not what we're here to talk about. Each jet stream gets its turn this week, first the polar jet stream which will offer up some chilly air tomorrow with daytime highs tomorrow stuck in the 40s and then on Wednesday clouds/sprinkles will join the fray keeping temps in the low 50s.

By Halloween, here comes that other jet stream...the one loaded with some beneficial moisture. Thankfully for Halloween itself just a bunch of clouds with only a few isolated showers (focused north of the MA Pike). It will be mild by Thursday evening as temps hold in the low 50s for the little ghosts & goblins.

On Friday, it's full on showers & downpours as a storm sweeps through New England. It's a good thing though as we've been running around a 3" deficit for October. We won't get 3" of rain on Friday but perhaps close to an inch by late Friday night. Drier air returns for the upcoming weekend.

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.
