Snow is Trending

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Just another batch of some nuisance snow out there for you this morning as another tiny storm scooted through here overnight. Most towns picked up a coating-1" but sunshine will go to work this morning (after a 2 hour delay--like a school!!) melting that coating as most towns reach the upper 30s by afternoon. Mainly clear skies for tonight and into tomorrow morning. As we step through tomorrow clouds begin to arrive and those clouds are the leading edge of another storm....a bigger storm for Friday-Saturday.

Here's what we know about this Friday-Saturday storm:

*A drawn out storm---beginning as light snow by 8am Friday then becoming steadier & heavier by Friday afternoon and into Friday night. Snow won't taper off until 9-11am Saturday!

*A plowable snow is likely Friday-Saturday (Our *Special* map in the maps section details how much).

*Poor Travel is expected (ground and air) is expected across southern New England Friday afternoon through early Saturday morning.

*Minor-Moderate Coastal Flooding is likely Friday PM / Saturday AM

Here's What We're Still Working on with this storm:

*Storm Track---It's actually two storms that will join forces to become one storm----if they join forces too late (well southeast of New England) then it will be a storm with much less snowfall.

*Until we can pinpoint the storm track then the amount of snow is not locked in and that dreaded rain/snow line is also not known.

New information will be later this morning--this will further our confidence in this forecast--stay tuned!

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.
