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).

Temperatures are a tad too mild in Boston to keep it all snow flakes, and an easterly breeze should be just enough to keep it mainly raindrops along the coast as well as through most of Bristol and Plymouth counties. Although, a burst of heavy precipitation could go over to wet snow and drop a slushy coating or so near the city/coast for an hour or two.  

There's a better chance for a slushy coating to a couples inches just west of Boston, along the 95 corridor, with up to several inches of snow (2-4") across SE NH.  With temperatures at or above freezing, and warm ground temperatures, aside from an occasional burst of snow coating the roads, most of the time should feature wet and not white roadways.  

A few lingering snow flurries are scattered about tonight and tomorrow, but most of the precipitation is over with as slightly cooler weather moves in.

Monday's temps are close to seasonal levels before the bottom drops out Tuesday.  Arctic air holds strong through much of next week with a close call with a storm on Thursday and with the cold air locked in, it would be snow if it doesn't miss us to the south.   

Ski Country and backyard skating rinks will do well with this upcoming pattern that settles in to end the last 10 days of the month as cold air rules and no more prolong thaws in sight.

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.

Nothing Dramatic

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Some years our January Thaw comes to a crashing end in a matter of hours and other years it's a slow process. This year will take the form of the latter as a series of cool fronts bump our recent warmth out to sea. You can plan on temps the next several days in the lower 40s and upper 30s for afternoon highs. It's a nice gradual slide, one which I prefer.
