Hold The Line

Posted by Pete Bouchard

Another stellar day! That makes three cloud-free days in a row.

Have the shorter days gotten your attention? Here is the official rankings for daylight lost per month. We really chew through the time next month, but then put on the brakes in November and December. (Heck the days are so short by then, who even notices that 10 min, right?)


Still bright tomorrow, but some clouds will sneak through our mighty dome of high pressure - I'm seeing some of the wispy variety in the afternoon. Certainly not a call to arms, but a sign that things are starting to move in the upper atmosphere.

The front we're eying in the Upper Plains has some showers smattered along it, and since it's the only game in town, we can see it coming three days out. Confidence is high on some wet weather for at least the first half of Sunday. There are some indications that the second half could be wet as well, but I'm not ready to sell out the entire day just yet.

Humidity will climb noticably in the coming days. It's not because it's all that humid inasmuch as it's just a stark contrast to the recent bout of dry air. Dewpoints will climb to the low/mid 60s by Sunday, fueling those random showers.

We'll resume the cool mornings, sunshine and blue skies starting next Monday and possibly stretching through to next 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:


*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.
