Here are the details about three storms that could hit the region this week:
Morning low temperatures bottomed out in the single digits…again…but the worst of the cold is behind us now and temps will moderate as we head into the weekend. A frontal system will stall over New England this weekend leading to a chance for rain or snow showers at times making it a bit unsettled but it will also lead to much milder air working in for a change
Too bad it’s raining right now otherwise today would be pretty sweet as temps have shot up into the 40s ahead of an Arctic cold front. The rain showers will shut off this afternoon but gusty wind will transport in another round of Arctic air and we’ll be in the deep freeze for the middle of the work week. Be careful driving or walking tonight…rain from today and a fast temp drop this evening will result in icy spots forming.
The snow will begin as early as 1 p.m. on Tuesday. The first to see flakes would be areas well to the south, along the South Coast, Cape Cod and the Islands.
Our Winter break is coming to an end…an arctic cold front will pass through this evening and temps will take a nose-dive.
Saturday’s high was 59…Sunday’s high was 54…today’s high is expected to be 50 in Boston. That would make this a three day January thaw…kind of like a Winter heatwave! Whatever you want to call it it’s been very nice but it won’t last that much longer as with cold air expected to work back in later this week.
Wind is settling down temps are on the rise and we’ve officially turned the corner…on the road to an extended January thaw that rolls in this weekend! Much warmer air begins to work in tomorrow but it happens several thousand up…it won’t work down to the surface until Saturday…it will lead to thickening clouds and snow breaking during the morning commute. The snow will be light but fairly steady and leave behind some coatings by midday.
We are right in the middle of the deep freeze but the worst is just about behind us and temps will begin a slow moderation through the rest of the week with an extended January thaw on the way.
It is extremely cold out, wind chills are dangerously low. The kids may want to wait a day or two to hit the hills with their sleds or build the snowman.
This is one of the coldest snowstorms in recent memory. Boston, Worcester and all points north and west are stuck in the single digits and dropping!
