Autumn Takes Hold

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Cool-looking clouds drifted overhead this afternoon as the chilly air settled into New England:

Thanks to @GuagBall for that awesome pic from Worcester.

Although the clouds were dark, the radar was quiet. Cool air was hustled in on that northwest wind, and the dewpoints continued to fall into the evening.

That sets us up for a chilly night.

Yep. There may be frost in some of those areas in blue. Towns like Hudson, Milford, Exeter, Epping, Hampstead and Derry, NH and Leominster, Fitchburg, Lancaster, Orange and Gardner, MA. Tomorrow night it will be even cooler! Mid 30s could come as close to the city as Wakefield, Carlisle, Waltham, Foxboro, Sharon and even down to Wareham and Carver!

The bounce-back is as swift as the cooldown. By Wednesday afternoon, temperatures should climb back to the low 70s under full sun. Rest of the week sees moderation as well. We might be nudging 80 by Friday. On top of that, there aren't any storms brewing in the long range...just a little front by the latter half of the weekend.

If you have any time off in the coming days, hit the orchards. You'll have the place to yourself, and the weather will be simply "maahvalous".

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.
