Fast Moving

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nasty storm blasting across new England right now with locally heavy rain & wind gusts near 45mph down in Buzzards Bay/South Coast region. This is the same weather system that spawned dozens of tornadoes in the Midwest yesterday afternoon. Thankfully this storm has lost a lot of wind energy overnight but not all of it and that's why we are seeing wind gusts near 45mph. The good news about this wind energy is that it's quickly moving the rain out of the region (although...we could use a full day of rain). This system is technically a cold front but the cold air is lagging about 24 hours and that means you have a breezy & warm day with temps spending much of the day in the low to mid 60s.

By Tuesday, the colder air is here as many cities & towns only reach the mid 40s by afternoon. Similar cold is expected for Wednesday and Thursday under cold high pressure. This cold high pressure will also give us ample sunshine for much of the week.

As we step into the upcoming weekend, another storm will take aim at us. This new storm will not have as much wind energy so no threat of severe weather and also a decent chance of an all day (beneficial) rain on Saturday. It's likely to be a cold rain too--perhaps even starting as some wet snow across southern N.H.

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.
