Down, Up, Down

Posted by Chris Lambert

On several occasions, we've been below freezing this Fall through many towns outside the city of Boston.  That is true again this morning, however, even the city of Boston is now below freezing.  The last time we hit the freezing mark or fell below it in the city was on April 7th, so it's been a while.

With a northerly wind continuing to pump in Canadian air through the day, temps struggle to warm up despite the sunshine.  Highs recover to near 40 in the Worcester Hills to the lower to middle 40s in the Boston area.  With a cold north wind over relatively warm waters, ocean effect clouds do cover the Cape at times, despite the rest of us remaining mainly sunny.

As winds turn southeast and eventually back to the south, temps moderate this week.  Highs reach the upper 50s Wednesday and mid 60s on Thursday.  Thursday afternoon and night does feature the chance of showers working in along and ahead of a cold front. 

Behind that front, back to seasonal levels Friday, through the weekend, with highs near 50.

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.
