Storm Sandwich

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Turkey sandwiches for lunch & dinner I'm sure (I always think of that Friends episode --the one where Ross loses it because an associate ate his prized turkey sandwich--hilarious). Anywho, we are sandwiched in between two small storms for the day. One pulling away and another taking shape south of New England. That means a bunch of clouds & some patches of drizzle for much of the morning. We will be able to swap out that drizzle for a peek or two of sun by afternoon. Cool & raw with temps in the low 40s. Good day for some cyber shopping.

This second sandwich (storm) will gather strength overnight off of North Carolina but instead of heading due north into New England it will head northeast, taking much of its storminess out to sea. On Tuesday we will start with clouds (and even some showers on the outer Cape) but drier air does take over by late morning and much of the afternoon. The storm avoids us but it will lock the cool air in here yet again with afternoon temps in the low 40s.

Wednesday & Thursday will be the mildest day this week with partly sunny skies on Wednesday. The partial sunshine will boost temps near 50 by afternoon. On Thursday, we lose the sun and gain clouds/showers. Despite losing the sun, temps will reach the low 50s. Showers are likely to continue into Friday and these showers are tied to a cool front that will drag much colder air back into the northeast by the upcoming weekend.

Enjoy cyber shopping----and that turkey sandwich!

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.
