That's What I'm Talking About

Posted by Pete Bouchard

So, were you red-faced that you were wearing a coat walking around downtown today, or because you forgot the sunscreen at Fenway?

Either way, I'm sure it wasn't much of a big deal...spring has sprung!

After a somewhat cloudy, cool start, you'll be forgiven for thinking the day would be another chilly one. But sun busted through the clouds and cold and we were off to the races. Highs topped out in the upper 60s all across SE Mass. Elsewhere, low/mid 60s ruled. Thought that was nice? We'll do better tomorrow.

A warm front is crossing first thing in the morning, then the sun returns and the warmth ensues. Don't be fooled this time. We're talking a short and t-shirt afternoon with the sun blazing overhead. But like today, keep your long sleeves handy for the sea breeze late day. This afternoon we dropped from 60s to 50s in a matter of a half hour thanks to the ocean wind, and tomorrow could do the same right at the waterfront.

Long range isn't as dandy or as warm. We'll ride the line between warm and cool with a trend toward the latter by late week. The wet weather returns too, culminating in a good ol' fashioned spring rainstorm by Friday.

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.
