Taking Hold

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The cold has taken hold and it looks as though it is here for a few weeks! That's right, I'm calling it now---winter will start fast this year across the northeast. We've already seen a few hefty arctic outbreaks this late fall season & we have one upon us now and an even bigger one slated for the end of the weekend and much of next week for Thanksgiving.

The good news with this arctic air is its full of sunshine. Today & tomorrow will offer up a healthy dose of sunshine both days. Despite the sun shining, that arctic air will not be denied so temps are below normal---low 40s today & upper 40s tomorrow (normal high is 50). By Friday, clouds enter the picture--as well as our sky. The clouds won't put a dent in those temps as we finish up near 50 by afternoon.

By Saturday the clouds are still with us & I do think we see some rain showers early in the day that linger into the afternoon hours. This is an arctic front moving through the region and that front will shove the clouds & rain offshore by late day it will also shove our "near normal" temps out to sea. Plan on windy & cold weather for Saturday & Sunday. Some leftover moisture in the air will likely result in clouds & some snow showers early Sunday morning but sunshine for much of Sunday itself. As for that Pats-Broncos game, clear, windy & cold with kickoff temps near 30 (wind chill temps in the teens). Brrr

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:

*Sunshine

*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 AND.....it'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.
