Here We Go Again

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Here We Go Again--C-3PO..Return Of the Jedi. The shiny metallic one speaks the truth as yet another lil winter storm takes a swipe at us today. Like yesterday, this won't be a blockbuster but rather a continue step into winter storm with a 5-7 hour burst of snow. Here are the storm deets:

*Arrives between 9:30-10:00am and departs between 4:00-4:30pm.

*Coating to 4" of snow..lightest amounts MA/NH border--1-2" Worcester/Boston----3-4" across SE Mass.

*Some travel disruption is likely midday & afternoon especially south of the MA Pike.

*Light & fluffy snow for shoveling & plowing.

That's the storm in a nutshell. Tonight the storm departs taking the flakes & clouds with it and also allowing bitter arctic air in the Midwest to head this way for the rest of the week. Sun shines tomorrow through Friday but daytime temps will stay pinned down in the 20s---some 15-20 below normal for this time of year!

By the weekend, another storm takes aim on New England and the weather models are suggesting this will be a bigger storm...a storm that starts as snow then goes to sleet/freezing rain & rain. As of now, it does look like a plowable snow for much of New England late Saturday Night-early Sunday morning.

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.
