No Big Storms Ahead

Posted by Chris Lambert

A cool and breezy day comes to a close as highs struggle to get out of the 40s and clouds blocked out that sun at times.  It's an easy slide back to the 30s this evening, however, more clouds advance in from our west and winds start turning to the southwest.  For many towns, temps are colder late this evening than near daybreak tomorrow as the 30s turn back toward 40 by sunrise. 

A few showers/sprinkles arrive pre-dawn or around daybreak Sunday too, and in the higher terrain of SW New Hampshire, flakes mix in.  That precip is with a warm front moving in.  In the afternoon, a cold front could trigger another isolated shower, but much of the day is spent on the dry side. Temps peak around midday in the 50s and fall back fast late afternoon.  Winds are active, gusting past 30mph.

Veterans Day itself looks pretty good.  Breezy with sun to increasing clouds and temps near 50.

A 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 by Friday.

Still, not big storms in this 7day as the mainly dry pattern continues.

Side note:  The front that brings a couple showers near daybreak here, brings accumulating snow to some ski resorts of northern New England tonight and tomorrow morning.  Check out your favorite ski resort in Northern New England maybe?  Some resorts have been making snow and have opened up this weekend.

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.
