Our major storm has moved into the Maritimes,bright sunny morning,chilly and fairly icy with the left over water that froze,had to spread some ice melt on the driveway this morning.
Eyes on next storm,but at this point doesn't look major as storm gets its act together farther east of us,but still something to watch.Snow starting tomorrow afternoon tapering off after midnight.Possible 2-4 inches,the heaviest amounts south of Boston in Conn.,RI,and SE Mass,but off course this depends on track and when the system does its deepening.Cold air moving in for the New Year's eve and day,but nothing terribly cold,more normal for winter.
The storm that has battered almost 60 percent of the country is moving through New England right now,and depending on where you live in New England you are getting either heavy snow,mixture,or heavy rain.In my area in eastern Mass,a brief period of light snow in the evening quickly changed to rain and heavy rains and strong winds most of the night.Coming to work this morning alot of road flooding.Rain is expected to taper toward late morning as a dry slot lifts north.Currently around 50 degrees on the cape and the islands to lower 30's north of Mass.Once the storm system swings by early afternoon,wind shift will bring in colder weather and may even see a brief period of light snow.Then we get a break until late Saturday when another coastal storm theatenes us with possible plowable snow.Models have been shifting back and forth the last couple of days,and most are trending closer to the coast now.One model creates a monstor snowstorm,but for now we'll just watch this.Another possibility is it doesn't get going until its east of us.We'll see.
Loved the Christmas break,and enjoyed wonderful times with th family,but tired now.Ate too much drank too much,and after all the work,it is quickly gone.I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas.
The weather is certainly not taking any holiday break.Large very strong storm system moved through the central part of the country and now has turned the corner and heading NE toward us along the east coast. Many tornadoes reported in the south as a strong cold front swept through the area.These storms will sweep into the SE today.Meanwhile on the west and NW side of this storm there are blizzard conditions.
As far as we here in New England we will see just about every kind of weather you can see in the winter,from deep snow to ice/sleet to heavy rain.
Most of the snow will be well inland and more north where they could see up to 2 feet of snow in the higher elevations.For my area it will start as snow and tranfer to rain after a few inches of snow.Strong wind will accompany this storm,especially along the coast.
