The beat goes on here in terms of the weather…you don’t need me to tell you it’s another bitterly cold start to the day. You feel it as soon as you step outside. High temperatures today won’t get out of the teens (a few degrees colder than yesterday) and the wind will be stronger, gusting over 20 mph at times through the afternoon.  In other words, at the warmest time of the day, wind chill values will be running either side of 0.

If you’re looking for a warm up, you’re in luck! A warm front will approach the region tomorrow allowing temperatures to rise into the mid 30s (about 20 degrees “warmer” than today).  The seasonable air comes at a price though. Skies will be mostly cloudy tomorrow, and a few snow showers are possible in southeastern MA in the morning.  The timeframe I’m most concerned with is tomorrow evening.

Light to moderate bursts of snow will develop, reducing visibility and causing slippery travel on the roads.  In general, a widespread coating to 1” is possible, with a few communities picking up a couple inches where the snow showers organize best.  We should be mild enough that the snow will mix with raindrops along the immediate South Shore and Cape Cod.

The cold comes right back in on Sunday, along with another chance of some very light accumulating snow Sunday night into early Monday morning.  After that, another blast of arctic air arrives on Tuesday and lasts through midweek. High pressure will be the dominant feature on the  map though, so expect mainly quiet, dry weather.

See you tomorrow morning!
