Moving Day

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Our extreme winter rolls on with arctic cold on the way out to make way for 50 degree weather by tomorrow. Amazing the dramatic swings we have seen the past 1-2 weeks and will continue to see for another 1-2 weeks!

Ok so to get to that 50 degree air we will have to go through some weather. It's a warm front & these fronts are very good at producing clouds & snow. No different this time as our radar is filling up with snowflakes. Despite the clouds filling up with snowflakes (that's where our radar beam is pointed), only a few of them reach the ground limiting accumulations to just a coating by mid afternoon (some locations in the Berkshires & Worcester Hills may end up with an inch). The 50 degree temps don't reach us today but we will reach the upper 30s by afternoon. In fact, our temps tonight will hold in the mid 30s with patches of drizzle & fog.

The weekend is warm. Saturday will see temps reach the lower 50s but also a big bag of rain--especially late in the day & at night. Not good for Frozen Fenway as well as the Patriots game. Plan on rain & wind with temps in the low 50s down at Gillette. Go Pats!

Our rain maker is gone on Sunday but the mild air sticks so after some morning clouds the sun is with us for much of the day and temps reach the upper 40s. Nice winter day.

Have a great weekend!

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:


*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'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.
