Patiently Awaiting Takeoff
Posted by Chris Lambert
It's been quite the struggle temperature wise as all day long from Boston, north and west, as temps have stalled in the mid 20s to lower 30s. That fact that most towns remain below freezing and continue to see just a touch of light snow and freezing drizzle in the air, in enough to be cautious of slick spots out there on the roads. In fact, a winter weather advisory is in place tonight until 3:00AM Sunday for areas around route 128, points north and west. Heading out the door tonight, be careful of slick secondary roads and icy sidewalks/driveways in those areas.
Temps overnight will slowly rise, and by daybreak tomorrow, any leftover drizzle is just plain drizzle (not freezing) with temps running above freezing.
So what about the warm-up? Yes, it's still coming, in fact, the warm air pushing into the cold air in place is the reason for our snow and freezing drizzle issues we had today and tonight. Eventually the warm air completely scours out the cold and we'll be back into the 50s tomorrow as temperatures launch upward once a southerly breeze kicks in. A couple showers roll through overnight tomorrow and again Wednesday morning, otherwise the work-week coming up is storm free. Perhaps even close to 60 on Tuesday!
December overall does start off warm, but a return to colder and stormier weather may return after the first 7-10days.
