WBZ Weather Madness

WBZ Weather Madness

We thought we’d have a little fun and choose some big weather events that have impacted New England and have YOU decide which storm will end up as the “winner.”



Record Warmth Within Reach

The coveted 70 degrees….an unofficial rite of passage into the Spring season. And while we’re still 13 days away from the Vernal Equinox (astronomical start to Spring), we’ll be basking in sun and potential record setting warmth come midweek.

March Madness: Friday Snow To Big Warmth Next Week

It’s been a soggy start this morning but thankfully the last of the wet weather will be pushing offshore by late morning. We’ve already reached our highs for the day as temperatures will now fall through the remainder of the afternoon, dropping into the 30s by early this evening. Gusts to 35 mph will create wind chill values in the 20s by late afternoon!

Round 2: Heavy Rain, Damaging Wind Gusts On The Way

Well Part 1 of our storm didn’t cause too much of a disruption here in New England, but Part 2 could create some issues tonight into tomorrow. The threat for severe storms extends up and down the eastern seaboard today, with the highest risk over eastern North Carolina and Virginia. While we may see some isolated strong thunderstorms here at home tonight, I’m not anticipating any widespread severe weather in eastern New England.

Messy Midweek Storm

After a taste of Spring this weekend, our temperatures are slowly sliding back down on this rollercoaster of a ride we call New England weather. Our next storm arrives in two parts and will impact southern New England with snow, freezing rain, downpours, thunder and damaging wind gusts through midweek.

Snow will transition to a wintry mix and then rain starting Monday night.

Dangerous Cold: Wind Chill Warning This Weekend

We’ve pretty much dissected the cold every which way this week. It’s here. It’s going to be brutal for a couple of days. And then it’s out as quickly as it came in. Don’t underestimate the power of this arctic air mass.

Bursts of Snow Followed By Frigid Air This Weekend

Areas of light snow have developed this morning as some upper level energy slides over southern New England; expect additional bursts of snow to come through this afternoon and early evening. Our atmosphere has a lot of instability today, so similar to summertime thunderstorms, any snow showers that develop today could get a little “feisty” so to speak.

Few Friday Showers; Near Record Warmth To Kick Off February

It’ll be nice to have a quiet weekend weather wise after last weekend’s blizzard and soaking rain the weekend prior to that. Now we’ve been talking about some unsettled weather for today all week along…so let’s break down what to expect for your Friday.
