The Fall Before The Climb

Posted by Chris Lambert

Skies clear out this evening as active west to northwest wind ushers in colder air.  That wind, gusts 20-30mph overnight, creating a chill to the air. 

So we'll start off Veterans Day on the chilly, but bright side, only to see clouds increase through the afternoon.  Highs near 50, so overall it's just below seasonal levels.

Those clouds that increase tomorrow afternoon are ahead of an arctic front, poised to blast through here Tuesday morning.  Ahead of that front, predawn temps on Tuesday likely run in the lower 40s, but drop into the low to mid 30s by mid to late morning.  That means, a few rain showers could turn to snow showers around the morning commute.  Ground temps will be too warm to stick, so no problems on the roads, but it's certainly an impressive shot of chilly air as it'll be the coldest we've been so far this season.  Air temps hold in the upper 30s Tuesday afternoon and with a gusty wind, wind chill factors hold in the 20s despite some returning afternoon sun. 

That cold air settles in overnight Tuesday and remains Wednesday.

As the area of high pressure, that brings in the cold, slides to our south, winds turn back to the west and southwest, allowing milder air to return by Thursday.  Mild air floods in here Friday, and lasts into the weekend as highs push back into the 55-60 range.

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.
