The Caboose

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

The Caboose of our cold & snowy pattern is just hours away. This storm will drop some decent snows across the region by late tonight. The *special* map (and my twitter feed) breaks down who is getting how much. Here are the storm deets:

*Patchy light snow/flurries arrive 10am-12pm with steadier snow arriving by 3pm and lasting until 11pm.

*Away from the mild ocean air (west of I-95), it will be a light, fluffy snow (technical sharing...rain/snow ratios near 20:1 with this storm!!)

*Right at the waters edge some raindrops will mix with the snowflakes at times this evening. From  Duxbury & south, the snow actually changes to rain keeping the numbers way down. Even in metro Boston--Hull to Marblehead--some rain takes over this evening.

*Some lingering patchy light snow/flurries is likely after midnight up until 5am Wednesday then sunshine is set to return for the day Wednesday.

Also of note is how bitterly cold it is this morning with many cities & towns starting the day near zero! This storm will help to re-arrange the meteorological furniture in the atmosphere (IE change our pattern) so that milder air arrives by late week. In fact, Friday afternoon will see the mercury soar into the upper 40s late in the day. This mild air looks to hold right through the upcoming weekend--so as our next storm arrives it looks mainly rain (some ice possible for a short time in the Worcester Hills).

Be safe out on those roads later today!

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.
