Snow Way?....Way

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

It's going to snow later today and for some of you, a lot. Another winter storm is taking aim on New England. This won't be quite as powerful as its older brother from a few days ago (in terms of wind & coastal flooding) but it will require you to gas up the snow blowers & ready the shovels & plows....but not in the same spots.

Here's what we're thinking on the storm:

*First snowflakes arrive between 12-2pm.

*Storm is a 12 hour storm---from 1pm today until 1am Sunday.

*Height of the storm will be from ~5pm until 11pm tonight.

*Metro Boston and cities/towns along south shore will actually see plain rain for a few hours early this evening before changing to a heavy snow.

*Just about entire area receives a plowable snow (2" or more), our *Special Map* in our *Maps section* details snowfall potential with this storm.

*Wind will gust along south shore/cape islands between 20-30mph this evening & overnight tonight.

*Cape & Islands won't see accumulating snow until after midnight tonight.

*No concern of coastal flooding with this storm

*Travel will be poor later today & especially this evening/ overnight.

What am I missing??---hit me on twitter if you need gaps filled in.

As for the remainder of the weekend, our storm will explode as it departs the region early tomorrow morning and that means a windy & cold Sunday with northwest winds 15-30mph for the entire region. That will keep wind chills in the 10s & 20s for the entire day (including Gillette stadium). The sun will shine though.

Looking into day 366 for 2012, it will offer a bunch of clouds & even a few flurries for First Night festivities. Afternoon highs on Monday reach the low 30s & evening temps in the upper 20s.

Enjoy that snow today.

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.
