Dry Sunday... Bit Messy Monday

Posted by Chris Lambert

A little cool, but it wasn't a bad start to this first full weekend in December.  Certainly good enough to pick out that Christmas tree or get some holiday shopping done.  The cold air in place now,  holds overnight and into Sunday, providing a cool, but dry 2nd half of the weekend.

Clouds once again increase Sunday afternoon, and that foreshadows the next storm moving in.   Snow starts for many of us after midnight Sunday, turning to sleet and freezing rain inland by the morning commute, and plain rain near the coast at that time.  Freezing rain will be an issue outside 128 mid-morning while it's just plain rain at that time near the coast.  Rain tapers off late afternoon, and we'll dry out for the evening commute.  It's not a big precipitation producer, but the coating-2" of snow we do get with some ice and rain on top of it will create slow downs and slick spots for the morning commute.  

Tuesday features a cool and cloudy day with a near miss from another storm.  There could be a bit of snow/rain across southeast Mass, but right now I'm leaving a mainly dry forecast.

Colder and drier air builds in for the rest of the week with highs in the 20s and lows in the single digits! 

Go Pats!

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.
