More Cold... Couple Storms To Track

Posted by Chris Lambert

Turkey and all the fixings again, or do we go with turkey sandwiches at this point?  How about turkey soup?  It will be great turkey soup weather the next couple of days as colder air settles in.   At least it's dry today and tomorrow though, so if it's time to pick out that Christmas tree, or battle the crowds for the Black Friday deals, you're good to go.

Sunday features a lot more clouds around as well as a bit of precipitation moving in.  A few snow showers are possible in the afternoon north of the Mass Pike, outside 495, while farther south and east, any snow flakes mixed in should easily change to rain drops as temps warm to near 40.  Rain and snow showers are scattered about, and generally on the light side.

Monday is dry, then it's time to track the next storm system in here for Tuesday and Tuesday night.  Northeast winds lock in chilly air, and we could have rain changing to snow as northeast to north winds pick up.  Track and intensity will determine how much snow falls and who gets snow vs. rain.  Closer to the coast, temps are near 40 and that means more rain drops than snow flakes, at least to start. Plenty of time to pin this down.   

Any leftover snow showers early Wednesday taper off, yielding to some sun by midday. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

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.
