Parading Around Town

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're old pros at this by now, another championship for this city, and what a fantastic season it was on many levels.  Today, we wrap up the festivities with the parade around Boston, and the weather turns out just fine for it.

The 10:00AM start features temps in Boston in the upper 50s, reaching the lower 60s by the time the parade ends.  The raindrops stay away from the city as just a few morning showers skirt across the Cape and Islands.  How about that wind?  Not nearly as strong as yesterdays, so overall, it's a comfortable start to the weekend.

A few scattered showers cross the area overnight tonight and linger into Sunday morning.  As winds turn to the north, colder air drains into New England, and that means much cooler weather for the second half of the weekend.  After a damp start Sunday, we'll dry out late morning, into the afternoon, and that means dry, but cool weather for tailgating and for kickoff at Gillette.  Afternoon temps in Foxboro hover in the mid 40s, falling into the 30s by the end of the game.  A northerly wind gusting 20-25mph adds a chill to the air.

Cold air settles in for a couple days early next week, before warmer temps arrive Wednesday and Thursday.  Thursday night, into Friday morning features the next chance of widespread rain.

Don't forget, clocks go back 1 hour tonight.  That means a 6:20AM sunrise and a 4:35PM sunset Sunday! I know, I know... just the messenger here.

Enjoy the weekend, enjoy the parade and go Pats!

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.
