So we have more snow predicted. In fact we are in a very stormy pattern,and several storm systems in our future. The first this weekend.A coastal storm moving south of new england will send a shield of snow up to southern areas.Heaviest SE and eastern sections,possibly 3-6 inches.Models are really fighting this one,so this go be more out to sea or send moderate snow into our area,won't know for certain until tomorrow.Another system mid week and another next weekend.In between bouts of artic air.So anyone thinking about spring,better just put it on hold for the rest of February,as the pattern will not allow any type of spring weather.Enjoy today as it may hit 50.
Happy Valentines Day!!!
Quiet weather for this special day.
Fairly mild weather ahead until Sunday when Artic air comes rushing in.some light snow on Saturday.More storminess next week.And the long range outlook has most of February having several artic outbreaks and storminess.This could be the first month in a long time that finishes below normal.
So I am back,left work yesterday shortly after arriving,not feeling well at all.I think my weekend of snow clearing caught up to me.A day of rest did wonders and feeling much better today.
On a weather note,weather has been kind of nice,perfect additional snow clearing,something my city refuses to do,and roads still remain half the width of normal.
I suspect they used most of their budget for snow removal if not all and can't afford to use anymore in case of any additional storms.
A quick hitting snow event tonight,but this should be mostly along the southern part of new england and only a couple inches,our storm for the weekend is gone,except for a small clipper on saturday with a little light snow.
Next potential large storm next week midweek,and too far away to even really talk about at this point.
Happy Birthday to Mr. Lincoln
Not a holiday,but nice to remember one our great presidents that help to shape the country we now have.
Our recovery is still ongoing,in my town they are doing nothing,so roads are still very narrow and snow piles continue to make street corners hazardous at best.And now a new hazard is making itself known. Huge holes in the road pavement are showing up,so one has to be alert.Some of these holes could do some serious damage if hit a high rate of speed.
Expecting a little snowfall tonight,but a few inches south of boston is expected.Our weekend storm is becoming less likely except for a little light snow on Saturday and Saturday night,but this is still a long way off and models will continue to change.Then some real cold air comes rushing in for a couple of days.
Well, I made it through the big blizzard,it was as predicted a major storm.
Totals outside my home here in Waltham,23 inches.
,but drifts were 3-4 ft,barely could see my car.
So basically spent most of the weekend clearing snow.
After effects sore shoulders,sore muscles and exhausted.
New England really took it hard.At least inland we just had to contend with lots of snow.Our coastline took it hard.
Especially SE Mass.,Cape Cod,where they experienced hurricane force winds,many trees down.Many coastal communities still without power.
Here in Waltham our streets are a mess,they have done a terrible job.
Now I understand it was a major storm,so states emergency were declared and travel ban was on until 4 pm Saturday.So they said good it came on weekend we will have plenty of time to clear the roads for Monday.Well,they didn't use the weekend to clear the roads,once the snow stopped plows disappeared.They did not use the weekend to clear the roads.
Main roads around the city are cut in half width wise,sidewalks are not plowed so people are walking in the street,thus drivers have to move over into the oncoming lanes.Many sections of road covered in 2-3 inches of slush.I was out driving around a little yesterday and never saw a plow or city truck trying to improve the roads.Now everyone is going back to work,and the roads are very dangerous.
Now today we get rain and no place for the water to go,so there will be major road flooding this afternoon.Just yesterday with the warmup and melting there were many flooded areas.
Currently we have light snow falling,which should change to rain by this afternoon.
We have to watch next weekend for another possible coastal storm.
Oh and as bad as the roads are,I see a couple out jogging this morning.(?????)
