We will be warm come Monday afternoon.
It’s Friday! This week seemed to drag a bit didn’t it? I mean we did start with a messy, snowy Monday…so it’s probably welcome news for many of us to know that the storm we’ve been watching for the weekend is going to stay well to our south.
We have a winner of the WBZ Weather Madness! After another cold start this morning, warmer air finally returns to New England tomorrow. It comes at a cost though as areas of heavy rain will impact our Thursday. And what’s this about more snow?
This is for all the marbles! Who’s it going to be…Jan/Feb ’15 or the Ice Storm ’08?? I have a feeling I know what event is going to be crowned the winner of our WBZ Weather Madness. Cast your vote…
We’ve narrowed down our original field of 16 impressive weather events to just 4 now. Who’s heading on to the Championship tomorrow? It’s up to YOU! Cast your vote in our WBZ Weather Madness…
From the No-name storm to a crippling ice event and historic flooding – we break down the last division of the 1st round of WBZ Weather Madness.
Yesterday’s battle was the closest we’ve had so far. The Blizzard of 2013 came out on top by a 13% margin and moves on to the “Elite 8”. Today, we break down the Hurricane Division with two key matchups…Hurricane Bob vs. Hurricane Gloria and Hurricane Sandy vs. Hurricane Irene.
Who can forget the Presidents Day blizzard of 2003? This storm has the dubious distinctly of being Boston’s greatest snowstorm eve recorded, beating out even the infamous Blizzard of ’78. In more recent memory, the blizzard of 2013 brought not only a #5 snow total for Boston (24.9”) but the cities 4th highest storm surge at the coast.
The April Fool’s Day blizzard of 1997 won yesterday’s contest…so it’s on to the next matchup! Who can forget last winter? It was the all-time greatest seasonal snowfall for Boston at an impressive 110.6”. 2011 on the other hand started with a bang! An historic nor’easter struck just days before Halloween.
Today’s match up includes the infamous 100 hour storm of 1969 versus the April Fool’s Day Blizzard of 1997. Let’s start with the former…This extremely slow moving storm dumped snow in our area from February 24-27. The 26.3” that fell in Boston still ranks as #3 in our all-time greatest snowfall. The April Fool’s Day storm came just hours after an Easter Sunday in the 60s and dumped 25.4” in Boston – good for #4 in the record books.
