We're Still Here
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Winter is here (and so are we Mayan peeps!) and there will be a storm---I guess, technically, a winter storm but there will be no snow for us. Here's what I'm thinking for the day ahead:
*Showers/ rain from now until 4pm.
*Locally heavy rain from 10am-3pm, most towns pick up an inch of rain.
*Wind will be an issue from about I-495 to the coast (but especially along the coast) 10am until 3pm, where wind gusts between 30-50mph are likely--wind gusts near 60mph are likely on the cape/islands. Some minor power disruption is likely today. Rather stormy day.
Moving into the weekend high pressure tries to bump out this big storm. That process will be slow (like me & Holiday shopping) so look for some wind both Saturday & Sunday--each day gusts between 15-20mph. As for El Sol, not much around tomorrow but Sunday will be bright with just a few clouds. We'll hold onto the sunny condition on Monday. Seasonably cold with highs in the mid 30s.
Looking into Christmas Day, it appears a weak storm will zip through southern New England with some patchy light snow & flurries. Could even be enough snow to talk about using the brooms by Tuesday afternoon (1-3"). There is also a sign of a bigger storm next Wednesday night & Thursday.
Regardless, I hope you & your families/friends have a wonderful Holiday!
