All Done

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

A respectable start to our winter storm season with many towns around metro Boston picking up between 3-6" and higher amounts north of the MA Pike. The storm is rapidly pulling away and as it is doing that it's dragging arctic air back into metro Boston. It's called a flash freeze. Temps will suddenly drop from 35 to 25 in just minutes. That slushy slop around the metro will start to freeze up throughout the day and really freeze up solid tonight as our temps head into the teens. Watch for slippery patches out on those roads this afternoon & evening.

Moving right along we find more cold air on tap as we start the week. It's dry tomorrow with a mix of sun & clouds but temps only in the mid 20s. By Tuesday, another storm takes aim on New England. This next one won't be as powerful as it will only be forming as it passes New England but you can still plan on a 6-12 hour period of light but steady snow arriving around 2pm and last up until midnight. I think most towns pick up 2-4" of snow but some locations up on Cape Ann/North Shore could eeck out 4-6" of snow. Cold, dry weather is the rule for Wedensday.

Enjoy that snow---it's heavy & wet along the coast---bend at the knees.

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.
