The Cold Gets Colder
Posted by Chris Lambert
With a fresh snow pack, we'll have no trouble keeping the cold air around. In fact the cold gets colder this week as high pressure to our north refreshes the Canadian air mass in place. Temps run in the mid 30s the next couple days, then fall back to the 20s for highs by mid-week.
For First Night in Boston, clouds are our friend. Any clouds we have move in this evening help prevent temperatures from free falling, and that means it's a slow trend down with temps around midnight in Boston at 32. Factor in the breeze, and it'll feel more like 22 outside. Yeah, it'll be cool, you'll need to dress warm, but it's a long way away from the arctic air that blasted us the morning of Jan 1st, 2009. That morning, we hit 6 degrees in Boston and 0 in Worcester.
Overall, the pattern looks cold, but dry this week with just a few flurries possible by Friday. Although this week is cold, long range indications are for a warmer pattern over the 2nd week of the New Year.
Have fun tonight everyone! Stay safe.
