Gusty showers end this morning with spring-like temperatures

Posted by David Epstein November 18, 2013 06:11 AM

The sound of rain pelting against the roof woke me up a bit early this morning. It was a good sound as the rain is quite welcome. It won't be enough to get the ground very wet, but I'll take it.5AM Temps.jpg

Most of the weekend will be great for being outside

Posted by David Epstein November 16, 2013 06:30 AM

It's going to seem like someone pushed the repeat button in the weather office as we go through the weekend and into early next week. Last weekend, you might remember, was sunniest on Saturday with mild air peaking on Monday. Then a cold front came through and temperatures fell dramatically. Wednesday we experienced a day that felt more like December than November.

More torrential rain in many areas

Posted by David Epstein September 2, 2013 05:05 PM

Let me start this afternoon’s blog with the fact that the second half of the week will feel like you might expect in September with cool mornings and low humidity. Our road to that great weather is filled with big puddles, humidity and thunderstorms.

Showers on the way to begin August

Posted by David Epstein August 1, 2013 12:10 PM

I am one of those people that hates the heat. I actually dislike it so much that I secretly count the days until mid-August when the chances of extreme heat tend to diminish. This year, I won't have to do any counting, at least at the beginning of the month. The image below shows one model's prediction for Boston for the next 10 days. Notice temperatures remain typical for early August with no big heat.

Rain ends this morning, more storms later

Posted by David Epstein July 23, 2013 08:25 AM

Heavy showers will pass through the region this morning as a break in the action takes place. Some areas saw up to 3 inches of rain already, mostly west of Route 495. The radar image below shows the back edge of the rain pushing rapidly through southern New England.

New record high set in Boston

Posted by David Epstein July 19, 2013 03:13 PM

Around 2 PM Logan Airport recorded a temperature of 99F which broke the old record of 98 set back in 1982. As of 3PM the temperature had dropped a degree and most likely will not hit 100F this afternoon, although it's not impossible it could go back up.

Cold snaps and heat waves have their peaks and today is the peak of this heat wave. The combination of heat and humidity makes it feel between 100 and 105F across nearly all of central and southern New England right now.

Showers in the forecast, but a better weekend

Posted by David Epstein July 10, 2013 07:14 AM

Humidity is back and will get worse today as a southwest flow of tropical air floods into the region. At the same time the air becomes laden with moisture some energy flying by at around 10,000 feet high will help to kick off the chance for showers and storms. jpeg verzion.jpg

Heat advisory for many again today

Posted by David Epstein July 5, 2013 07:29 AM

Temperatures in the city of Boston stayed in the 80s most of the night, only briefly going below that mark in the wee hours of the morning. Already, in the city readings have risen into the 80s and headed even higher than yesterday. Highs this afternoon will reach the mid 90s, combine that with the humidity and you have another heat advisory.
