Turkey Soup and Snow
Posted by Chris Lambert
Couple things to talk about the next several days: 1) How the cold & windy weather prompts comfort food talk like mom's homemade turkey soup. 2)Yes, there's the potential for some of us to see snow Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.
It wasn't that temps were all that awful this afternoon, it was that the wind seemed to pierce right through you. Of course, with winds gusting past 30mph, any chill in the air is magnified, and that'll be the case tonight and through the day tomorrow. In fact, with overnight lows settling down into the mid 20s tonight, and winds constant around 15mph with occasional gusts to 30mph, the wind chill factor hovers in the teens. Best to break out that heavier jacket if you're staying out late tonight. Also, if your holiday leftovers are down to the bones... maybe it's time to throw them in the pot and make a great broth for some soup. We'll need that comfort food the next week or so as a chillier pattern settles in.
So how bout that snow? It is possible Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night, with perhaps a few lingering flakes Wednesday morning. It doesn't look like a blockbuster storm, but it does appear a wave of low pressure tracks close enough to bring us precip, and perhaps, accumulating snow. With an onshore component to the wind, I think the marine layer provides enough warmth for rain to mix in at times inside I-95 to the coast. Outside, I-95/Route 128, enough cold air should hold to see white and not wet. Too early to throw out numbers, exact track and intensity are still a bit uncertain, but it's possible that some of us will need to clean off the car or shovel the sidewalk and driveways by Wednesday morning.
