Fire It Up!

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Felt a little warm today? There's more summer in the days ahead.

Hot high pressure is building across the Northeast. 90s WON'T be common, but upper 80s and high humidity will rule the roost into midweek.

We're not without our thunder chances either. I'm not seeing widespread pounding thunderstorms, but from Monday to Wednesday the clouds are free to roam and build into afternoon rumblers. Keep an eye to the sky for these. There's enough heat and humidity to make them nasty.

Speaking of an eye to the sky, the moon is putting on quite a show in the coming nights. Although muddied with high clouds and haze, it will be the closest to the earth for the entire year. Obviously, the added bonus is that it's full too. Combine those, and the moon will appear 12-14% larger than normal. Here's an example of a past supermoon from a few years back:

Don't worry if you miss it. We'll see another one next August.

Make it a good Sunday!

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.
