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.

Little low pressure system will spin up along a front tomorrow. It spells wet weather for many:

but these types of mini storms are sometimes tricky. Note the 'wet snow' across Worcester and into Southern NH. I'm expecting the temperatures to dip as the storm moves thorugh, so we should see some wet flakes mix in during the afternoon. There could be as much as .5 to 1" in the elevations above 500ft, but it doesn't look like a huge deal.

Cold air will be delayed for a day. That's the latest buzz from the weather maps. That means instead of hitting on Monday, it'll hit on Tuesday. We're delaying the inevitable folks. It's still looking bitter, it's still looking like it's here for the long haul.

Enjoy these final days of unseasonably "warm" weather (it's all relative).

Gooooooooo PATS!!!!

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).

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.

Nothing Dramatic

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Some years our January Thaw comes to a crashing end in a matter of hours and other years it's a slow process. This year will take the form of the latter as a series of cool fronts bump our recent warmth out to sea. You can plan on temps the next several days in the lower 40s and upper 30s for afternoon highs. It's a nice gradual slide, one which I prefer.
