First Flakes

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Always a fun time when I see my first flakes off the season---still brings me back to my childhood out in the Berkshires. I love easing into winter---I don't like what happened 2 years ago Halloween--too much too soon---this is perfect, just some snowflakes with little to no travel impacted.

The reason for the first flakes is an arctic front that is living up to its name sending temps near 50 at midnight down into the 30s by 7am....impressive, most impressive. This arctic front will shove the rain/snow showers offshore this morning but leave behind a big bowl of arctic nasty as daytime temps stay in the upper 30s to around 40 and lows overnight tonight head for the teens/20s. Wednesday is cold all day with daytime highs once again more like December---upper 30s. #Brrr

As quickly as the cold arrives it peels right back out of here with a warming trend set to kick in by Thursday afternoon. may cities & towns will reach 50 at that time and even warmer weather for Friday afternoon....near 60!

Winter isn't quite ready...needs a few more weeks. :o)

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.
