Say It Ain't Snow
Posted by Chris Lambert
Yup! After most towns cracked the 60 degree mark this afternoon, we have to talk about snow in the forecast by Wednesday morning. It won't be a big storm, but certainly a reminder that we're in winter, and winter certainly will be felt across much of the country over the next couple of weeks.
Despite hitting 60 in Boston today, we were 9 degrees short of the record set back in 1932. In Worcester, the high of 53 missed the record by 13 degrees! Hard to believe we were that far off huh?
That warm weather slides out to sea tonight and colder weather builds in as temps start off Tuesday morning near 30 degrees.
With colder weather in place, and a wave of low pressure riding along a front stalled just to our south, we do have to introduce some snow to the forecast Wednesday morning into early Wednesday afternoon. It's a fast moving pattern, so timing and placement of these lows can be challenging, but right now I expect some light snow to breakout just before daybreak Wednesday. There may be enough warm air mixed in to change wet snow flakes to rain drops across southeast Mass, especially near the coast. It doesn't look like a big impact storm, but 1-3" of snow will slow the roads down a touch, especially in the morning with temps near freezing away from the coast.
A quick shot of cold air moves in Thursday night and Friday, followed by seasonable weather over the weekend. For the AFC Championship game, temps run mid to upper 30s for tailgating, upper 20s for kickoff, and then cooling off even more for the victory ride home from the game. Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!
Next week still looks cold.
