The pictures from Northern New England are sad…major ice storm is ongoing for parts of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine with power outages in the tens of thousands.
It may be quiet now but it won’t be over the weekend. Winter Storm Watches are now up from the NWS for Saturday night and Sunday morning. A weak cold front will slide in this afternoon with a flurry but more importantly it will thoroughly establish the arctic air here in New England. This will set the table for our weekend storm leading to lots of snow. The trend over the last 24 hours is for an increase in moisture and while the mid-levels still aren’t that impressive the upper levels (jet-stream level) all of a sudden is much more favorable for generating lift and therefore precip.
Last winter left a battered and bruised coastline that in some areas was completely rearranged.
Once again it’s going to be a challenge getting around today…first black ice issues early on as all the slush from yesterday has frozen up…bu shortly it’s more snow.
For many of us urban gardeners, the shady areas of our garden are often the most challenging.
A line of very strong thunderstorms rolled through this evening out ahead of a coldfront…
They say April showers bring May flowers…so what do June showers bring?
The heat is on and that means the minds of New Englanders turn to thoughts of hitting the beach.
The average high temp for the middle of March is 47 degrees in Boston…today’s high was a January-like 33 degrees.
What a nice week…and break from the harsh winter conditions over the past few weeks.
