Hectic Times Ahead
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Let's face it, the Holidays can get pretty hectic and the last thing you need is some epic snowstorm to get in your way. Well..good news, you have a nice stretch of dry weather that will last into the start of the weekend. High pressure is moving into New England right now and will camp out for a few days. That means mainly sunny skies (there will be a few high, thin clouds out there today) and seasonal temps. Also with high pressure so close, little to no wind for the next couple of afternoons--that is HUGE this time of year when outside for any length of time.
While all this is going on, changes elsewhere are brewing....(insert dramatic music here)
The atmosphere will undergo changes that will greatly increase the chances of winter storms along the east coast. The first such chance will be on Sunday. As of now, it does not look like a big storm but it does look like a cold storm---so some patchy light snow/flurries appears likely on Sunday (all day) that will linger into the evening hours (including the Patriots game). This storm does have the potential to become a major storm with snow,sleet, freezing rain & rain. Too soon for rain/snow lines or how much in my town but use the next few days to find the shovels, test the snow-blowers and buy that first bag of sand/salt.
