To & Fro
Posted by Pete Bouchard
This morning we had a friendly reminder that we're still in knee-deep in winter. Generally 3-5 inches of snow for most -except on the South Shore, Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod. For a thorough review of the snowfall amounts from area Skywarn Spotters and our weather spotters, head to this site.
As for the remainder of the night, we're done with the storm, and we won't see a flash freeze, but I do expect our temperatures to gradually slide overnight as the cloud break up. So expect some icy sidewalks, walkways, driveways and crusted-over cars by morning as temperatures fall into the upper 20s.
Sun is back tomorrow, and although it's filling the sky. Some clouds will be drifting through as another system develops to our south. We're melting nonetheless as highs climb near 40!
That storm to the south will make its pass on Friday morning (few hours either side of dawn). This time around, the snow will be flying on the South Shore/Cape and Islands. It's a combo of proximity to the storm and a little bit of "ocean-effect" snow. (Cold air moving over relatively warm water...our version of the Lake Effect they see around the Great Lakes.) Generally, it's a swath of 1-3 inches South Shore, Cape and Islands. May even see some snowflakes in Boston if the storm jogs a little to the north.
We'll feel the pinch of cold air on Friday, then bounce back over the weekend. Temps are back and forth until the REAL cold slams down early next week.
