Mild and Wet

Posted by Chris Lambert

Impressive numbers this morning as temperatures start the day near 60 degrees!  We'll watch those numbers climb into the low to mid 60s by late morning, then fall through the 50s through the afternoon into the evening.  The drop comes with a cold front passing by. 

Out ahead of that front, the southerly breezes kick up and showers work in.  Early this morning, the most consistent rains are across SE Mass, with the rest of us watching the shower chance go up late morning into the afternoon.  Most areas see the rain end late this afternoon, except SE Mass.  Since southeast Mass is the first to see the rain settle in and the last to see it go, rain totals there will be the highest.  1/2-1" of rain falls across the Cape, 1/4-1/2" of rain through SE Mass and 1/4" or less from Boston to Worcester to Nashua.  Obviously not a huge rain event in the city, and this front hardly puts a dent in the ongoing drought.  We're running about 10" below average in the city so a 1/4" or so isn't much more than a drop in the bucket.

Rain clears out for all tonight and colder weather returns.  Temps struggle to hit 50 Friday and Saturday, with winds gusting 30-40mph on Friday.  Less wind for Saturday, but a chilly day overall.  Sunday looks mainly dry, although an early sprinkle with a warm front can't be ruled out.  We're in the middle 50s by the afternoon and upper 50s and dry Monday.

Tuesday and Wednesday, the coldest air of the season settles in as 40 is hard to hit by Wednesday.  Also by Wednesday, there will be a storm just to our south.  If it moves in here late day or at night, it could bring substantial precip through southern New England.  With winds NE to E, precip type would favor rain for most as it looks now.  I'll leave it at that.

Enjoy the 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.
