Just In The Nick of Time

Posted by Chris Lambert

What a nasty day yesterday was!  The rain doesn't get any colder as temperatures held in the lower to middle 30s.  Even some morning freezing rain created icy conditions north and west of town.

Alright, we're over and done with that as drier times prevail just in time for last minute shopping and travel time across New England.  Temps hold in the 30s throughout the day with partial sunshine.  

A flurry passes by for a few of us this evening along an Arctic front.  That front means business as temps fall into the lower 20s by midnight Mass and into the lower teens by Christmas morning.  Christmas Day is a cold one with highs in the lower to middle 20s despite a sun filled morning.  Winds are active overnight and tomorrow morning, adding a bit of a sting to the air.

A few rain and snow showers are scattered about Thursday, but this won't be much of a storm for us.  Otherwise, we're dry right through the weekend.

Merry Christmas!

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.
