Find Eric Fisher on Twitter and Facebook I had to chuckle today when so many people mentioned how ‘nice’ it was out and how much ‘better’ it felt. Shows what we’ve been going through here […]

This has been one long cold stretch and while it will stay pretty cold the next few days temps look to turn around over the weekend! If you are looking for warmer air you first need to look aloft…about 6000 feet up in fact. We look to this level of the atmosphere for clues on how warm or cold the air at the surface will be. Although the air 6000 feet up is still very cold, with some sunshine, mixing and the right wind direction, that air will sink down to the surface and as it does it gets compressed and therefore warms up…sometimes more than 30 degrees from that 6000 foot level.

The cold front that came through earlier today will continue to slide offshore tonight, eventually stalling to our south. Low pressure will track along this boundary, grazing the Cape/Islands with some snow overnight into Monday […]
The storm track for Sunday night and Monday continues to look well to our south…far enough south to put this storm somewhere between a minor event and a non-event.
Over the past 24 hours computer guidance has been suppressing the storm to our south minimizing the impact and lowering the snow amounts for Sunday night and Monday…that trend continues. What was once looking like a sizable snowstorm is now looking like no big deal.
Intense snow showers called snow squalls raced through this afternoon leaving behind fresh coatings of snow and ushering in the coldest air mass of the month. It’ll be a frigid Friday with morning lows in the single digits but adding salt on the wound will be the wind…wind chills will approach 20 below as you start you day.
We are in a holding pattern with nothing but cold through the weekend and occasional bouts of light snow or flurries.
