Winter Day

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Oh snap....wind chills at 7am ranged from 6 in Worcester to 16 in downtown Boston....that's typical of a day in early January! This arctic blast is no joke---I chatted with an old colleague from Charlotte, NC last evening---he was on a lake early afternoon boating as temps were near 65 and while driving home for dinner around 7pm, he drove through snow showers!!! I have a feeling winter may try to get off to a fast start this year. Time will tell.

In any event, today is a cold winter-like day with temps struggling to make it to 40 by afternoon despite a day full of sunshine! We are cold again tonight with lows heading back down into the lower 20s under a mainly clear sky but as we roll from Wednesday night into Thursday our cold blast begins to melt. It will take some time (and wind power) to move this milder air into New England but by afternoon, those thermometers should be up near 50 degrees! even warmer (better?) weather by Friday under a partly sunny sky--most towns will see the upper 50s!

The mild air looks to stay with us through the weekend & early next week. In terms of storminess, it remains dry until Monday-Tuesday of next week. At that time, rain showers (not snow) will be with us.

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.
