Parade Of Storms Leads To Bitter Cold Weekend

By Terry Eliasen, Meteorologist, WBZ-TV Exec. Weather Producer

BOSTON (CBS) – The parade of storms continues.

Next up, a quick shot of rain and snow this afternoon and evening.

Watch Melissa Mack’s forecast

This will be more of a nuisance than anything else, especially when compared to some of the storms we have endured over the last few weeks.

Some rain and snow showers will break out by mid-afternoon, changing rather quickly to all snow by the evening commute.

Snow should fall light to moderately through the evening and taper off between 8-10 p.m.

A few snow showers could linger a bit longer right at the coast and over Essex County.

Looking for a general dusting to two inches of accumulation, less to the south, and higher end of that range to the north.

Some elevated locations in Worcester County and Southern N.H. could see up to 3 inches but I see that as the maximum potential for this minor event.


After a brief break on Thursday we have another storm locked and loaded for Friday.

This one appears to be a mostly snow event for our area.

Start time around or just before dawn, but a quick mover. It should be over by Friday evening. Weather models are still struggling a bit with the intensity and amount of precipitation, this is largely because the storm will literally be developing and strengthening as it passes overhead. An early estimate would be for a widespread 4-to-8 inches of snow on Friday with the potential to shift slightly in either direction by a few inches.


Next up – an Arctic blast this weekend bringing the coldest air of the season. There certainly will not be any snow melt going on after our Friday storm.

Highs over the weekend could struggle to get out of the single digits in some suburbs, teens around Boston.

Overnight lows will range from a few degrees below zero to a few degrees above!
