Not Perfect, But Pretty Good

Posted by Chris Lambert

The pressure is on right?  Now we're in August, and weekends before the Fall grind of school and no more vacations are numbered, so we need to make these weekends count!  For that, we need nice weather.

We'll do ok this weekend.  It won't be picture perfect, but we'll capture many dry hours overall.  Today starts off with plenty of clouds and an occasional spotty morning sprinkle/shower amid the mostly dry morning, with the best chance for a passing shower along and south of the Route 44 line from Plymouth to Taunton to Providence, points south.  That means the Cape and Islands too as breaks of sun are sometimes hard to come by there.  Highs range from the upper 70s down across the Cape to the low to mid 80s around the Boston area and through many of the suburbs. More breaks of sunshine are likely along and north of the Pike this afternoon.  However, once we get enough sun and enough daytime heating, inlands communities run a slight risk of a passing late-day shower or storm after lots of dry hours. 

Any isolated early evening storm fades quickly post sunset, and we're in for a comfy overnight and lows head for the upper 50s in the burbs to the mid 60s in the city.  Those mainly clear skies overnight allows for a mostly sunny start on Sunday.  Sunshine rules most of Sunday morning before midday clouds build and with enough cold air aloft (means instability), a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm manage to pop.  Mostly after 3:00PM.  They'll be scattered about mid afternoon to early evening, so it's something to keep an eye on.  Tomorrow is a brighter day across the Cape, with a low rain chance until after 4:00PM there.

Monday comes with a taste of Fall.  Low humidity, mid 70s and a cool overnight.

Have a good weekend!

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.
