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!

    I think that this storm will be a quick moderate snowstorm for most of us. Is there any chance we cud get a foot? What muat happen for that to occur?

    • Don Kent

      There’s plenty of snow out there already. No need for another foot.

  • Wizard

    It’s not a good idea to use “Don Kent” as a username, sorry…

    • John

      I agree. Don Kent is certainly not appropriate for a user name.

      • Kon Dent

        OK, how about this name.

  • jitters

    rex ryan needs another foot…

  • Leslie Bartlett

    Kon Dent
    no you are bent

  • Harry Mann Jr.

    What is the chance of this snowstorm missing us on Friday and what does it have to do for it to miss?

    • brat

      Thats easy. Just have the state give it 38 million dollars to come and after it accepts the money it leaves and goes to China.
