The Cold Retreats

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Hopefully Santa delivered the goods today. Mother Nature delivered the cold. Wow!----we only had temps in the 20s throughout the afternoon hours (normal high temp on Christmas Day is 38). This cold won't be sticking around though as we rebound back into the 30s & eventually 40s by the weekend. Getting this arctic cold out of here will require some work---like using a crowbar---and that work will result in some weather on Thursday.

It's not a blockbuster storm--in fact, it's not even mediocre as it will only produce clouds & some scattered rain/snow showers across the region tomorrow afternoon.  Tomorrow morning is dry but look for some scattered snow & rain showers from about noon until 7pm. Hard to believe that after the arctic chill today that raindrops will fall out of the sky tomorrow afternoon from Boston to Millis and locations south of there. Farther north and west look for a few afternoon snow showers. There may be some locations along the I-495 corridor that pickup a coating to an inch by 7pm but that looks to be it.

In any event, we are back into the sunshine by Friday (as well as Saturday). Look for temps to reach the low 40s each of those days---some great skiing weather expected across all of New England those 2 days.

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.
