After a busy week of weather it’s nice to have a quiet day to sit back, relax and not have to worry about shoveling! At the beginning of the week it looked like this weekend would feature another significant storm…but as I’m sure you’ve heard, that is no longer the case. But wait – don’t stop reading yet! Some accumulating snow is still in the cards for Sunday night.

Let’s start with today. Sunshine is going to fade behind middle and high altitude clouds through the afternoon and evening especially. Expect highs either side of 30 and a west wind 5-10 mph (occasionally gusting to 15).  Tonight, skies will be mostly cloudy with a few flurries and snow showers possible, mainly from Cape Ann to Cape Cod. We won’t be AS cold as the past few nights, but temps will still tumble back into the teens and low 20s.

Tomorrow’s high temp map will be very similar to todays (around 30 degrees) – and our below normal stretch continues:


A few stray snow showers are possible tomorrow afternoon but the steadiest areas of snow won’t arrive until late Sunday evening and overnight. Pockets of snow will linger into Monday morning which means a slippery rush hour commute in spots. I think many communities will pick up inch or two of snow from this event. There is a chance eastern MA and the south coast could pick up a bit more (perhaps 3 or 4”) if everything comes together just right. Admittedly, there is still considerable uncertainty as to how quickly the storm goes by and how close it comes…so monitor the forecast closely tonight & tomorrow for updates.

The next storm threat arrives on Thursday and this disturbance will have more moisture and energy to work with. It’s too early to discuss details…but keep an eye on this timeframe in the days to come.

Have a great day!
