Weather Whiplash

Posted by Chris Lambert

Dramatic changes for sure across the area.  Yesterday, Lunenburg, MA and Nashua, NH hit 67 and 66 degrees respectively.  This morning, both locations have reported snowflakes mixing in with some of the showers we've had!  Change doesn't get much more abrupt than that.

Towns near and outside 495 have the best chance of seeing a few snowflakes mixed in this morning, where temps hover around 36 or 37 degrees.  It's too warm to stick, so no worries on the road, just a sign of the changing seasons more than anything else.  Farther east, it's chilly and damp this morning all the way to the coast and we'll deal with scattered light showers and drizzle through 10:00-11:00AM before drying out for the rest of the day.   Some sun returns inland by early afternoon, with slow clearing toward the coast through the rest of the day.  Clouds hang tough along the coast, especially the Cape and Islands.

Heading to Gillette?  It's dry this afternoon for tailgating as temps hover in the mid 40s from the tailgate to kickoff, then fall into the 30s by the second half of the game.

With clear skies tonight, with exception of the Cape, it's a set-up for a cold overnight as lows plummet into the lower 20s inland, and in the lower 30s in Downtown Boston.

That cold air continues to pour in tomorrow, meaning despite a ton of sunshine, highs struggle to hit 40 across the Worcester Hills, and struggle to hit 45 in Boston.

Milder temps return Wednesday and Thursday before showers move in late Thursday and Thursday night as another cold front crosses.

Enjoy your Sunday 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:

*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.
