Hard to believe with temps in the mid 50s right now that later tonight most will experience their first taste of Winter…but it true.
The pattern is turning more active and at first will be mild but over the weekend the cold will win out. With temps climbing to around 50 degrees for the next 36 hours there is no concern for ice or snow. There isn’t much forcing for ample moisture right now so we are looking at just some spotty showers and pockets of drizzle through later tonight. However, tomorrow a cold front will slide into the area and rain intensity will pick up.
It doesn’t feel like Summer but it certainly is better than the deep freeze we’ve been in over the last 10 days. The pattern has flipped this week with the West getting slammed with cold and the East much milder. This pattern will hold all week-long before breaking down over the weekend.
Nothing to see here today but cold, cold and more cold. Gusty west winds aren’t helping much either…windchills this afternoon will stay in the teens and lower 20s.
The United States Coast Guard has to operate in anything that Mother Nature throws at New England.
So how much cold and snow can we expect this winter?
The biggest storm we have seen in months is on our doorstep, just in time to make Thanksgiving travel a bit messy.
A major storm could create a travel mess across the Northeast for the start of the Thanksgiving holiday.
We are climbing out of the icebox this morning after surviving the intense cold blast from the last 36 hours. The cold won’t be as harsh today with highs clearing the freezing mark something that wasn’t achieved yesterday.
A significant coastal storm for southern New England is in the forecast next week.
