Quiet Couple Days

Posted by Chris Lambert

It felt like a late April/early May day yesterday with temps near 60, a gusty wind and scattered thunderstorms.  Most towns picked up between 0.50-1.00" of rain, and winds gusted up to 63mph in Harwichport and 59mph in Plymouth.  

The rain is long gone this morning, but a gusty wind continues, this time from the west.  We won't have gusts to 60mph like yesterday, but it'll be a hold on to your hat type day with gusts 30-45mph.  The strongest gusts occur over the higher terrain of southern N.H. and Worcester County, where a wind advisory is in place until 7:00PM.

There's also a flood watch still in place for N.H. and central and western Mass.  We didn't get a ton of rain, but the rain we did get, plus melting snow, will allow for rivers and streams to rise.  As that rise takes place, ice on the streams and rivers can crack and break apart, and could cause ice jams.  If that occurs, flooding is possible behind the ice jam/blocked area.  The flood watch is in place through this afternoon.

We're quiet the next couple of days and still mild with highs today in the mid 40s and lower 50s tomorrow. 

Rain arrives Tuesday, with the steadiest in the afternoon, and it's possible to see another batch of showers/snow showers arrive Wednesday afternoon/night. 

After that, it'll be seasonable and dry to end the week, and colder by next weekend.  While it'll be colder, it won't be the bitter, Arctic air we just saw.  Long range, it's possible some of that starts to return to the U.S. by the end of the month, so we'll see how that plays out for us.   Bottom line, we're in a bit of a reprieve from winter weather, but we're a long way from being done.

Enjoy your Sunday... and what a game last night!

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.
