The Big Chill

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

While we were unwinding after that Sox victory last night a decent little chunk of arctic air dropped into southern New England. When you step (or did step) out the front door, the numbers were down into the 20s--even Boston hasn't been this chilly since mid April (36). This arctic air will cling to us for much of the day as the temps struggle to reach the upper 40s. In fact, along the coast, the afternoon temps will only be near 45...nearly 15 degrees cooler than yesterday. That sun will shine brightly (morning clouds on the South Shore for a time).

Tomorrow, the chilly air tries to move out by milder air and this will result in a mostly cloudy day and even a few sprinkles tomorrow morning(7am-11am). Plan on a dry afternoon and evening. For game 6 of the World Series, skies will average out partly cloudy & temps in the upper 40s. A light breeze out to right field. Go Sox!

Onto Halloween. Thankfully, this year we are not expecting epic an snowstorm, a storm that has a name or even a storm that appears 'perfect" on the weather charts but we are going to be tracking a warm front. This front will offer up a treat in the sense that it will be mild with afternoon and evening temps in the upper 50s! This front will try & trick us though with clouds for much of the day and even a few showers late afternoon & evening. Boo. As of now, the highest chance of raindrops appears to be from about Fitchburg to Portsmouth. It should stay dry metro Boston until all the little ghosts & goblins have returned home safely. Beneficial rain is likely on Friday with many towns picking up an inch of rain. It may also be fairly windy as well.

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.
