Mild Days Are Numbered

Posted by Chris Lambert

It wasn't exactly a balmy day out there with a gusty wind, but mid 40s in January certainly is above the average and it gives the chance for the snow piles and ice to further melt. 

That breeze subsides overnight and with clearer skies in place later, many towns go back below the freezing mark for the first time in a couple days.  Despite the cooler start to Monday morning, it'll be a stellar mid January day with highs near 50 degrees and a mainly sunny sky.  The breeze gusts to 20-25mph at times from the southwest, but won't be as active or chilling as the one we had today.

Tuesday features more mild weather, however, it'll be a wet day overall with rain moving in as a wave of low pressure slides by us.  Rain is steadiest across eastern MA, especially over the South Shore/Cape/Islands. 

We'll catch a break in the precip Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, then a front brings in a couple rain showers Wednesday afternoon.  As the front crosses, temps drop a bit and a few snow showers are possible Wednesday night.  Along that front, we'll have to watch an area of low pressure that tries to develop off the coast.  If that happens, some snow could linger into Thursday.  Right now, the storm doesn't look to be a big one for us as the "phasing" of energy in the atmosphere looks to be too late. 

Friday is a seasonable and dry day.

Next weekend, the trend is down in the temp department as a quick moving system brings a few flurries or snow showers Saturday and highs in the lower 30s.  We won't get out of the 20s on Sunday.

So the trend is down on the 7day forecast.  While next weekend looks colder, it's not as cold as the Arctic air mass we just had.  However, long range guidance continues to indicate to a colder pattern for the Midwest and Northeast by the last 5-6 days of January.  Bottom line, enjoy the thaw now, winter is likely a long way from over.

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.
