Shower or Two, But No Big Storms

Posted by Chris Lambert

A few passing showers flew in here this morning, dampening the ground and starting many towns off of the wet side.  Those showers were along the leading edge or the milder air that's moving in.  Highs today reach the middle to upper 50s and the wind pick up out of the WSW, gusting 30mph+ at times this afternoon and evening.  Additionally,  you can catch another passing shower or two this afternoon as more instability rolls in. We'll have our dry stretches too, so it's more of an occasional passing shower type day vs. a washout.

Skies clear tonight as the wind continues to be active and temps drop into the 30s.

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

Another chance for 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.

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.
