Mr. Heat Miser Goes Missing

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The little fella who is a fan of heat waves and heat indices is MIA across America. Except for Florida, much of the nation is under the influence of arctic air. We are no exception either as afternoon temps will only reach the lower 30s. That sun shines (at least partially) for much of the day. Those clouds that will vie for your attention are tied to an arctic front which will reinforce the cold across New England for the remainder of the week.

This arctic air also becomes a player in our weekend weather. A storm is expected to form in Carolina late Friday then move north toward New England for the weekend. We don't know specifics of the storm track which makes it difficult to tell you what type of wintry precipitation is on the way as well as how much. With arctic air around, snow for the interior seems like a lock. Along the coast (Including downtown Boston) the storm will start as snow but eventually change to mixed precipitation/rain.

We should have a much better handle on this storm later today & more likely tomorrow. In any event, plan on unsettled weather both Saturday & Sunday. with the height of the storm Saturday evening lasting into mid morning Sunday.

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.
