Feb.10th
about .5 inches of snow last night,just enough to coat the surface.Now more cold air comes rushing in.Winter shows no sign of easing any time soon.We continue to have a parade of systems some weak and some strong.Next up a strong system on Thursday,still a huge variety of tracks and strength.Track will be crucial for this system,due to the fact there won't be a huge amount of cold air to tap into.So a closer track will have more rain and a farther east track will produce heavy wet snow.Could be a lot of wind with this system also.Until Thursday cold air will be firmly entrenced.

Feb.11th
Another winter storm is getting its act together along the gulf coast.This system will cause major problems in the south with ice,snow along the northern fringes of the precip through alabama,mississippi, and Georgia into south carolina.Once this system moves off the coast it will strengthen and head up the east coast spreading a variety of weather along the way.

Feb.12th

The southeast is going to have a major effect from this storm,with a lot of icing for northern Georgia and South Carolina,snow just to the north of the icing.This storm will hit the Atlantic and head up the coast strengthening as it does with heavy snow,ice and heavy rains right along the coast.
It looks to cross Cape Cod tomorrow night,and deepen rapidly as it does.This will cause warm air to rush in from the Atlantic causing a changeover to rain 15 to 20 miles inland.How much snow falls will depend on how quickly the changeover occurs.Western areas should stay all snow and get anywhere from 12 to as much as 18 inches.This is going to be a major story the rest of the week,so everyone should be prepared.

Feb. 13th

Major heavy snowfall for some areas inland from the coast,closer to the coast,there will be mixing and change over,the big question is when the mixing and changeover will occur.Bad day all up and down the coast.

Feb.14th
Deep low pressure moving up through the bay of Maine toward the maritimes, behind it some very strong winds today,but sun should return this afternoon,but with little effect with the strong winds.
We won't have much time to rest though as another coastal storm moves off the NC coast and bombs out as it moves northeast.Still some question how close it comes,but more snow for eastern sections tomorrow and tomorrow night.Still not sure of how many inches,Cape Cod could really get dumped on,but for eastern sections should be a plowable snowfall.

Quoting 25. sheslookingUP:
Yeah, we had a very brief glimpse of sun here in Cambridge a short time ago. I took the opportunity to scan for sunspots, and there are some very big ones right now. Because my husband and I are eclipse chasers, we have some simple equipment that makes it safe to look right at the sun through binoculars, and sometimes I use that stuff to look for sunspots. Pretty neat. but I tell you, I am way sick of this weather! We have a grandson coming up tomorrow for a few days with his mom our daughter, and the weather makes it very hard to plan what we will do. As far as I am concerned, they can take the winter away now, I get it, no need to persist, ok??


Looking,about this time of year and especially with all the storms and cold,I think most people are done with it.I talk to a lot of people and they don't feel that well either,so enough is enough.I love tracking storms,but after yesterdays storm which turned into such a mess,and also with Belle,she is so dirty and taking her out in this mess is no fun at all.

Wind has really picked up here in Cambridge. An hour ago two people got completely stuck on our one-block long, dead-end street. They have not done a great job plowing it. Last week we had a UPS truck stuck crosswise on the street for about 20 minutes. Would not be wanting to walk around outside right now--too much heavy stuff on branches and too much wind. Taking a leaf from the cat's playbook and staying INSIDE.

Coming down heavily here in Cambridge, almost a whiteout right now. I had to drive briefly around 10 am and it was extremely slippery, and never did get my rear window clear, just too much coming down. I am sick and tired of this weather! Kind of funny that they are having trouble maintaining snow cover in Sochi at the Olympics. I would be happy to ship over everything in my yard and driveway if it would help. Still, only five weeks until spring--and even if the weather is still cold and snowy then, at least you know it won't last. Hope everybody can stay indoors and stay safe.

For those of you tired of the cold and snow,there may be some relief by the middle of next week.That remains to be seen,but it does look like a pattern change coming.

LT,yeh,thats something to watch,theres a lot of cold air waiting the wings,to come rushing in behind this system,it depends on the dry slot that punches up over us,may limit any snow for us.Will have to see.The northeast coast up along the NH and Maine coast my see more of the backlash

Hi NEw, I can't see how you would miss the back-end snow which looks like it COULD be substantial as the low "bombs" out, as it passes to your East. Let us know what happens.

Some interesting analysis going on around the blog,there are some very knowledgeable weather junkies here on WU.I like to visit all of them.
So basically for this system,this low is growing even as we speak in the SE,major damage is going to occur down there with very thick ice accretion coupled with increasing winds.Then its going to turn up the coast,basically a coastal hugger for a while until around the Delmarva pennisula and then make a quick turn NE,probably over eastern LI and over Cape cod,probably somewhere around the Cape Cod canal.All the while bombing out as it makes the NE turn.A lot warmer ocean air is going to be pushing into the coast line.so a changeover to rain will occur,the question how far inland will the coastal front move.How much snow before the changeover.STill questions that need to be ironed out with future models.a lot of moisture with this system,so even after the change over to rain,the rain is going to heavy,so expect some major street flooding,since the water won't have anyplace to go.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE THAT A SIGNIFICANT STORM WILL AFFECT THE
REGION THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY MORNING.

THERE IS A GOOD LIKELIHOOD OF STRONG EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS THAT
WILL DEVELOP FOR A TIME ALONG THE EAST AND SOUTH COASTS DURING
THURSDAY. WIND HEADLINES WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED.

THERE IS ALSO A LOW PROBABILITY FOR MINOR COASTAL FLOODING ALONG
THE EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS COAST DURING THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE ON
THURSDAY NIGHT.

so it looks like its not a question of changing to rain,its how far inland the changeover progresses.Right now the track will be crucial.Since we don't have a high in the maritime to keep the wind north and northeast,the rain line will probably progress inland 20 or 30 miles at least,until the winds switch back to the north and northwest after the storm passes.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHERN CONNECTICUT...
CENTRAL MASSACHUSETTS...EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...NORTHEASTERN
MASSACHUSETTS...SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...WESTERN
MASSACHUSETTS...SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE...NORTHERN RHODE ISLAND AND
SOUTHERN RHODE ISLAND.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

THERE IS MODERATE CONFIDENCE THAT A SIGNIFICANT STORM WILL AFFECT
THE REGION THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT. THERE IS STILL SOME
UNCERTAINTY WITH DETAILS OF THIS STORM...BUT IT DOES LOOK LIKE THE
SYSTEM WILL AFFECT THE REGION.

THE MAIN HAZARD IS EXPECTED TO BE HEAVY SNOWFALL...MAINLY ACROSS
THE INTERIOR OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. MILDER AIR WILL WORK INTO
COASTAL AREAS...POSSIBLY SEVERAL MILES INLAND...SO THERE MAY BE
SOME SNOWFALL BEFORE CHANGING OVER TO RAIN. PLOWABLE SNOWFALL WILL
LIKELY OCCUR WELL INLAND...MAINLY NORTH AND WEST OF INTERSTATE
495.

THERE IS A GOOD LIKELIHOOD OF STRONG EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS THAT
WILL DEVELOP FOR A TIME ALONG THE EAST AND SOUTH COASTS DURING
THURSDAY. WIND HEADLINES WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED.

THERE IS ALSO A LOW PROBABILITY FOR MINOR COASTAL FLOODING ALONG
THE EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS COAST DURING THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE ON
THURSDAY NIGHT.

cold day here in New England,not going to hit 30 today.
Kind of the same story for most of the winter.If the storm was coming today or tomorrow,not question about snow.

Looks like some more winter weather with this system coming out the gulf,The southeast will definitely see some winter weather,but just like with us up here,where the line between snow and rain and icing,is going to be a tough call.

When we get into February,we the storms become stronger and and the track becomes more crucial.The battle begins between warmer springlike air trying to move north and the cold arctic air still pushing back,so we get a battle zone where strong storms generate.Some of biggest snowstorms over the years occur in February.Although Thursday's storm won't be a blockbuster,it will be a very strong storm with a lot of moisture in it.
But since we don't have a cold high pressure sitting up over the Maritimes,track will be more crucial on if it stays snow or there is a change and who will have most snow or rain,especially along the coast.

CONFIDENCE IS GROWING IN THE POTENTIAL FOR A SIGNIFICANT STORM
LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY...BUT A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY
REMAINS.

THE MAIN POTENTIAL HAZARD IS FOR HEAVY WET SNOW WITH THIS SYSTEM.
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THIS STORM WILL BE MILDER THAN MOST THIS
YEAR...SO PORTIONS OF THE REGION COULD END UP WITH MORE RAIN THAN
SNOW IF THE STORM HUGS THE COAST. ON THE FLIP SIDE OF THE
COIN...IF THE STORM TAKES A MORE EASTERN TRACK...MAINLY SNOW
WOULD FALL BUT THE HEAVIER PRECIPITATION MAY BE CONFINED TO THE
COAST OR OUT OVER THE OCEAN.

THERE ALSO IS A CHANCE THAT A WIND ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED FOR A
TIME ON THURSDAY ALONG THE COAST FOR STRONG EAST TO NORTHEAST
WINDS.

FINALLY...THERE IS A LOW PROBABILITY FOR MINOR COASTAL FLOODING
ALONG THE EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS COAST DURING THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE
ON THURSDAY.
