Dry Today, Tricky Start To The Workweek

Posted by Chris Lambert

Cold weather is locked into New England for now as clouds increase and thicken through the afternoon as highs top off in the lower to middle 30s.  Tailgating at Gillette is in the lower 30s with just a light breeze.

A winter weather advisory goes in effect for many at 11PM tonight as light snow breaks out close to that time, and continues into the pre-dawn hours on Monday.  A coating to 2" of snow falls before some freezing light rain/freezing drizzle start mixing in inland, adding a glaze, and light rain takes over at the coast.  It's not a big storm, but with much of the morning commute spent with temps at or below 32 along and outside I-95/128, it'll be a slick one on untreated roads.   Good news is that the precip is slow and steady instead of a heavy onslaught, and that means the road crews should be able to get a good grip on the situation overnight and early tomorrow (at least for the main roads).

We'll change to rain along the coast and in Boston by 9:00AM with a transition to plain ole' light rain inland between 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.  10:00 AM near 95, 1:00 PM for outer Route 2 in northwestern Middlesex County and northern Worcester County.  Rain is light for the afternoon and tapers off for an easier evening commute.

Tuesday is another close call with a wave of moisture sliding just to our south.  It'll be close enough to give us plenty of clouds, and even some rain/snow showers across southeast Mass.

The rest of the week is cold, quiet and dry.

Go Pats!

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.
