Didn't change the title of the blog since we are still in the middle of the artic air.In fact today feels much worse than yesterday due to stronger winds. Windchills are below zero or single numbers in most areas.
It was at 1 degree when I left the house this morning.And with a little wind,the windchill was -5 to -10 degrees.Thats cold.
Another cold night tonight,tomorrow slightly warmer but less wind so should be much more comfortable. A little snow tomorrow night,but not much,the best chance of accumulations along the south coast of new england,but the storm doesn't get going until well out to sea.I'm sure everyone will be happy with the warmup next week,eventually getting into the 40's.Heatwave!!!!
It was cold this morning,but I've seen a lot worse.8 degrees this morning.I suspect it will be around zero tomorrow morning,since highs today will only get to the teens,so not as far to fall tonight.
The snow on Friday night is looking much less,as models trend weaker with this system and no phasing will occur until well out to sea.Stil time for changes,but I suspect if it does change it will be for less snow.Chilly this weekend,but a warmup coming next week.
So the snow along the coast never materialized,except down on Cape Cod and the islands,which received 2-4 inches and Rhode Island.
I have about .5 inches on the ground.So now the cold takes over with dangerous wind chills through Thursday.Then we have to watch a storm late Friday into Saturday,strength of this storm is still questionable,but at least a moderate snow event will take place.
Yesterday's 54 degrees will become a distant memory has winter has decided that he's going to move in and set up residence for a while.
The results, frigid temps,temps we haven't seen in a couple of years, and bouts of snow from time to time.
Our first chance of snow starts later today and through the night. The problem with this storm is that it is strengthening at sea,so prediction where the heavy bands of snow set up is extremely difficult.This will be a coastal event,with the greatest chance of deep snow will be right along the coast,espicially the SE and the NE coastlines.But depending on how quickly this storm strengthens will determine,if more areas get heavy snowfall,and how much.
After tomorrow then the artic air takes over until the next storm moves in on Friday,which could be another significant system.So put away your light clothes and get your shovels and snowblowers ready.
The less said about the Patriots the better,they looked awful last night,not the way I wanted to see them go out.
