A Chapter Closes

Posted by Pete Bouchard

After running as much as 5 degrees above normal for the month of October, the tables are turning. The arrival of this afternoon's cool front signaled an end of the above normal temperatures and the dawning of a new era of chill.

At one point this afternoon the temperature contrast was over 20 degrees across the Commonwealth!

Now that the chill is setting in, it's time to wipe out gardens, mosquitos and throw on the heat and the extra blankets. Highs in the coming days will only manage mid 50s and the low temperatures will fall to freezing or below. Multiple frosts/freezes are likely in the suburbs, while we teeter near frost territory in the hub and surrounding communities. (Best chance for a frost here is Fri or Sat AM).

A band of showers scooting through tomorrow will glance Southeast Mass. We'll be right on the edge in Greater Boston and Worcester, so our wet weather will be brief and spotty.

Showers will be on the DECREASE by gametime, but the air will remain chilly. Expect mid 40s tomorrow night and Thursday night. Caveat Thursday is the wind, which will make it feel like 30s! Dress for that, NOT the 40s.

Almost time to play ball!

Gooooooooooooooooo Sox!!!!!!!!!!

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.
