Out With The Rain, In With The Cold (Lots of Food too)

Posted by Chris Lambert

What a soaker yesterday was!  2-3" of much needed rain across the area (needed for our drought, not our travels) as southerly winds gusted 50-60mph.

Our storm now is long gone, but behind it, the colder air has rushed on in.  Temps start this Thanksgivukkah in the 20s and lower 30s, and hold in the lower to middle 30s this afternoon.  Factor in the wind, and wind chill factors run in the teens and lower 20s. 

It'll be a cold one out on those high school football fields, and for those towns not playing on the artificial stuff, fields are likely muddy thanks to that soaking yesterday.  I bet mom won't even let those uniforms in the house after the game!  Leave the mud shirts in the garage or in the locker room.

Dry weather continues the next couple days, before a little light rain/snow flakes work in Sunday afternoon.  It won't be a big storm.  We'll watch the potential for more rain and snow on Tuesday though as steadier precip moves in.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!

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.
