Of Warmups and Dry Spells

Posted by Pete Bouchard

What a rebound today! Almost as remarkable as the story that surfaced about Andy Kaufman faking his death.

OK, maybe not that big (if it's true).

But believe me when I say that this warmup has legs now, and we'll enter the weekend on an above normal tick.

Tomorrow's looking like the last time we'll have a chance to meet (or eclipse) 60. A subtle (but weak) weather system will kick some clouds our way into the weekend. Combined with a sea breeze, we should hover in the mid 50s - perhaps low 50s right at the water's edge.

Showers are in the forecast Monday as a front approaches. Gusty winds will boost us near 60, but unfortunately, the wet weather will be inconsequential to our drought...which officially deepened today according to the US Drought Monitor:

Like many, I'm just waiting this out. Eventually, our pattern will shift and we'll be back in the firehose. Heck, if past history is any example, one nor'easter and we'll be bailing again.

Enjoy the sun tomorrow.

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.
