Cherry Picking The Weekend

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Fine work by the sun today. Brought us right back into summer!

Now, in typical summer fashion, the storms will move back into the picture. Here's the weekend in one snapshot:

Nice graphic, but it deserves some explanation.

A fast-moving storm system is rolling out of Upstate New York this evening. Showers and a passing storm are possible in the morning along the Mass/NH border. Once that passes, we'll have about a 60% chance of afternoon storms in the afternoon for all but the Cape/Islands. (Don't think you're getting off scott-free...fog will be an issue through Tuesday.)

Sunday will dawn murky and mostly gray. Some sun will be around, along with small chance for a storm.

If Sunday is the "driest" day of the holiday weekend, then Monday is the wettest. A weather system will bear down on New England, and showers will be around early and late.

Keep in mind that this is a humid, soupy airmass. Any storms that form have the potential for torrential rain and brief, localized flooding. And for as much hype we give the storms, we have to mention the dry hours too. This is what we mean by not being washed out. Midday Saturday, much of Sunday and a few hours on Monday should be rain-free.

Now go! Make use of the last weekend of summer. Snow (and the holidays) are just around the corner.

Be well and be safe.

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.
