All Downhill From here

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Our January Thaw has been a nice treat----they usually happen every year and when they do, it's usually 3-6 days. No different this year as ours started last Saturday and continues today with many cities & towns reaching 50 degrees by afternoon under a mostly sunny sky. heads up this morning though---several reports of black ice from the leftover rainwater yesterday, untreated surfaces will be slick until 9-10am.

While we enjoy temps near 50 this afternoon eh first of several cold fronts will be working across NY/PA and heading for New England. Sometimes when January Thaws end it's from one nasty arctic front but this year it will be 2-3 cold fronts that slowly push the mild air out of New England. The first one moves through tonight and that will prevent reaching 50 on Thursday. Most cities & towns will reach the mid 40s tomorrow under a mostly cloudy sky. Another front slides through New England on Friday morning and that front will keep afternoon temps in the low 40s.

One final front is set to move into New England this Saturday. This front will send us back to reality as afternoon temps both weekend days are in the 30s. This last front will also have the most moisture with it (the others are moisture starved) which will lead to flurries and even an isolated snow shower.

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.
