About-Face

Posted by Pete Bouchard

After roasting then melting in the heat last week, things have turned around a bit. The "other" summer has returned, one with the somewhat sticky air and better chances for rain and storms.

"I am waiting for you, Vizzini! You told me to go back to the beginning... so I have."

Inigo Montoya, Princess Bride, 1987

But hang on. We're NOT going back to the wet June weather that brought us endless rain and cool temps. It just means that you won't have to wait for 3-4 days to see a drop of rain. In fact, you won't have to wait until tomorrow either. A few showers are popping up this evening, and as the night wears on, more will form and drift in from Western Mass.

Downpours and rumbles of thunder are possible too as the airmass continues to get heavier and heavier (read: increasing moisture) tomorrow. Hardest hit areas will be through Central and Western Mass. where up to 2+ inches may fall:

Now these numbers are just a guide. Just because there is no rain out on Cape Cod doesn't mean we'll come away dry. Random downpours could stray ANYWHERE, so keep an eye out tonight/tomorrow.

We'll get a break from the rain by midweek, and then the humidity will drop for most spots (except Southeast Mass.) by Thursday. As the sticky air comes roaring back on Friday and into the weekend, the shower threat should increase as well (but not all-day rain).

Got it? In short, not a bad summer week.

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.
