Santa's Delivery

Posted by Chris Lambert

As the kids jump out of bed this morning and scramble to the tree, the only remnants of Santa left in the house will be all those presents, an empty cookie plate and empty glass of what was milk.   Outside, it seems like that sleigh of his dragged in some arctic air, which won't be in a hurry to leave today. 

Temps start this morning in the teens and only manage to climb into the lower 20s this afternoon.  The arctic air offsets our sunshine, so that's why temps won't budge much throughout the day.  The stinging wind chill this morning, which hovers near 0, will improve a bit this afternoon as wind speeds die down.

Clouds increase tonight as temps initially dip into the teens this evening and rise into the 20s late overnight as winds turn south.

Some rain and snow showers cross our area tomorrow.  It won't be a big storm by any stretch, but north and west of Boston, a coating to an inch of snow may fall for some.  With southerly breezes increase, any snow flakes south of the city turn to rain showers in the afternoon as temps warm to near 40 across the South Shore. 

The rest of the week, into the weekend is quiet.

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.
