Game On!

Posted by Chris Lambert

2004 and 2007 were great, we broke the curse, then repeated just 3 years later.  So what's left to do?  Of course, win the whole thing at home!  That old number of 1918 is once again popping up, and a win tonight would be the first time we've clinched a World Series Title at home since that ominous year.

Weather-wise, Mother Nature says there's nothing ominous tonight.  Temps at Fenway hover near 50 degrees for the game with light breezes.  Any sprinkles we have this morning are long gone by then, and partly cloudy skies rule.

Temps tonight won't be all that cold as lows head for the mid 30s in the colder burbs to the mid 40s in city, and with a milder start to the day tomorrow, we'll have a milder day overall.  That bodes well for Halloween as temps warm into the lower to middle 60s.  I can't rule out a passing shower or sprinkle for the trick-or-treaters, with the highest chance for that northwest of 495, but much of the time looks dry.  With a south wind becoming quite active, temps hold near 60 for the evening, so no need to bundle the little ghosts and goblins up!

Wind and shower chances increase overnight Thursday, and by Friday morning we'll track heavier rain showers through southern New England.  Winds during the first half of Friday could gust 40-50mph out of the south, with perhaps stronger gusts down across Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands.  Despite strong winds and rain, temps Friday still near 70 degrees!  Rain should taper off in the afternoon too. 

As that system slides east of us, we dry out for the weekend.

Go Sox!!!!!!!

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.
