So It Begins

Posted by Chris Lambert

We cracked 90 in Boston this afternoon, and many other towns and cities did as well.  By looking at the set-up over the next few days, it appears that we'll likely take a run at 90+ from Monday-Wednesday.  3 days in a row makes a heat wave, and if you include today, a few towns will see 4 days in a row of 90+.

A severe thunderstorm watch is posted until 11:00PM this evening for much of Central New England, and that extends all the way to the Seacoast of NH.  We've watched a plethora of storms fire over the Greens and Whites this afternoon, and also back through Upstate New York.  The ones through Upstate NY I'm more interested in, since they are moving east and seem to have the potential of skirting the MA/NH border this evening.  While most of us remain dry, if you live in the Merrimack Valley, or north of Route 2, west of 495, I'd keep in eye to the sky this evening.  However, the highest severe weather threat remains in Central NH and Central VT.  For much of Metrowest, Boston, and SE Mass, the storm threat is limited.  Hazy moonlit skies rule overnight, with temps near 70 and patchy fog a possibility.

The wild card over the next few days seems to be how many thunderstorms are able to fire each afternoon.  It looks like tomorrow is a bit more unstable compared to today, so I'll give it a 30% chance of picking up a storm.  Should be a similar case Tuesday, and a bit higher of a chance Wednesday. 

Toward the end of the week, the pattern turns somewhat more unsettled as occasional showers and thunderstorm are possible each day.  Temps won't be as warm, with highs running in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

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.
