Cold And Snow

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

yet another arctic front came blasting through here overnight (some of you picked up a coating of snow overnight due to that front). This front just re-enforces the cold pattern for a few more days and then finally the bitter pattern will relax by late week allowing for some milder air to flood into New England.

Before that happens we have three more cold days and one more round of plowable snow on the way. No snowflakes today just bitterly cold air with a biting wind that will cut right through you. Air temps won't change much today--staying in the mid 20s but as the day grows older the wind will crank upwards of 20-30mph sending wind chills down into the lower teens. At least that sun will shine.

Tuesday is our "storm day". It will be a storm that passes south of New England rather fast and it's coming from the Ohio River valley--NOT the Gulf of Mexico. Due to those reasons....not a blockbuster event but certainly enough to plow and lead to some travel disruption tomorrow afternoon & evening. As of now it appears the snow arrives between 10-11am and departs by 8-9pm. Most towns will pick up a fluffy 2-5" of snow---see our special map for closer detail.

In any event, we are back into the sunshine on Wednesday but continued cold with most towns in the 20s for highs. By Thursday, the jet stream winds begin blowing from Seattle rather that St. Nick's compound and that will send temps into the 40s for both Thursday & Friday. #Yay.

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.
