Brief Detour

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Super day! Highs made it into the low and mid 50s with tons of early sun. Clouds eventually got the best of us, but most of the showers stayed west of Worcester. 

We'll get back to the spring like warmth in a little bit, but first we have a little detour tonight and tomorrow. Yes, there might be some flakes that fly as the cold air settles in overnight. And yes, there might even be a few places (outside of Boston) that wake up to a coating on the lawn.

Gasp! Is this a return to winter??

Easy now. Just passing through. If you wake by 7-8 o'clock, it'll be gone. How's that for short-lived?

Still, tomorrow won't be as warm as today, and Friday's mostly cloudy forecast will also keep the temperatures in check - with another chance at some light sprinkles in the afternoon.

Making plans for Easter weekend? I got my cousin's family shindig on Saturday, then the Easter Bunny pays a visit Sunday morning. Also on the plate: wet weather late on Sunday. Yeah, it's not the driest forecast, but at least the morning will be somewhat bright and dry.

Overall, our temperatures will settle back below normal after Monday. (Speaking of which, I talked myself into the 60s based on similar early April setups in the past.) This isn't a time to get down though. The big atmospheric block that brought us all the snow and cold is dissolving over the high latitudes, so any cold snaps will be short-lived.

Translated: stand by for a warm up in the long range.

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.
