Turkey Meat & Potatoes Of The Storm

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nothing like a big bowl of storminess the day before Thanksgiving. The nasty storm is here---it's ugly but it won't be enough to cancel Thanksgiving. Here are some thoughts on this storm....

*Heavy rain throughout much of the day with most cities & towns getting between 2-4" of rain. Our biggest rainstorm since September 1st (August 9th for Boston).

*Likely to be some localized street and shopping mall/ grocery store parking lot flooding.

*Wind is the other component of this storm with gusts between 25-50mph. Looks like the strongest wind gusts will occur across southeast MA & that also means the area is also likely to experience some minor power disruption through the day. The wind will subside between 2-4pm..last on  the Cape/Islands.

*No concern of the rain changing back to snow *except* across the higher terrain in Berkshire county as well as much of Vermont. This occurs between 5-7pm. Also , no concern of a flash freeze tonight as west winds will dry off area roads, sidewalks before temps crash into the 20s by early Thursday morning.

*Thanksgiving Day is cold & dry---hopefully the exact opposite of your turkey. ;o)

Be safe & have a happy Thanksgiving folks!

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.
