The Plunge, Now The Rise

Posted by Chris Lambert

An Arctic start for sure this morning as temps dipped to -16 in Norwood, -12 in Bedford, -9 in Plymouth, -7 on the Vineyard, and even -3 in Hyannis.  As of 7:30AM, the coldest I've seen in Boston at Logan Airport is 2, and -4 in Worcester.  Boston and Worcester's records are safe at -4 and -8 respectively. 

The cold this morning is breath taking, literally, and figuratively.  It's a beautiful sunrise and I've seen some fantastic pictures of Arctic sea smoke over the ocean.  Of course, if you're still cleaning up damage along the coast, the ocean has been anything but beautiful over the last 48hours.

So where do we go from here?  Well, the Arctic air eases it's grip this afternoon as highs head back into the middle 20s.  There's a bit of a breeze, but wind chills are no longer dangerous, so you can hit the ski slopes or send the kids out sledding. Temps quickly start dropping early this evening, then level off and rise back into the lower 20s by daybreak tomorrow.  Clouds increase tonight, and there could be a touch of freezing mist near Buzzards Bay tomorrow morning.  For the rest of us, a few patches of mist or a light shower passes by Sunday, but we'll get our dry hours too with temps in the 30s to near 40.  Outside 495, there could be pockets of freezing drizzle in the afternoon.   Even when temps go above freezing, the ground is so cold, that black ice still is possible.  

We'll see all rain tomorrow night - midday Monday.  Even if an inch of rain falls, roofs should be ok since the snow on them is so light weight (little water content to it). Temps near 50 Monday morning before crashing in the afternoon.   That'll set-up a cold one for Tuesday with highs in the teens.

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.
