Ups and Downs Continue

Posted by Chris Lambert

During transition seasons, big temperature swings are common, and that has been on display over the last week.  Tuesday morning, Norwood hit 19 degrees, and 2 days later, hit 70 by midday Thursday.

While temperatures swings won't be as dramatic the next several days, we still have some ups and downs to go through.  Temps bounce back into the upper 40s this afternoon, and lower to middle 50s for Sunday and Monday afternoon. 

I don't see a lot of rain in the forecast ahead, but once in a while, a passing shower strolls through the skies.  As a warm front passes by early tomorrow morning, a sprinkle or brief shower is possible first thing in the morning.  By the end of the day, a cold front could trigger another isolated shower, but much of the day is spent on the dry side.

A second, and slightly higher chance for a few rain/snow showers arrives Tuesday morning.  As an impressively strong area of high pressure drops out of Canadian, usually cold air is sent through the eastern half of the country.  For us, it means temps are in the lower to mid 40s early Tuesday morning, but thanks a cold front barreling on through, temps drop late morning and hold into the upper 30s in the afternoon.  Along that front, a few rain/snow showers fall early to mid morning.

Cold air continues to pour in Tuesday night, and Wednesday is another cold day with temps struggling to hit 40 degrees.

Thursday and Friday, the temp trend is up as we bounce back into the 50s.

Enjoy the weekend! 

Seems strange not having any Sox games/parades to talk about anymore and the Pats have an off week.  Hmmm.... What to do?  Check out your favorite ski resort in Northern New England maybe?  Some resorts have been making snow and have opened up.  In addition some more snow falls tonight/early tomorrow well north.

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.
