The Good, Bad & The Ugly
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Enough of that dang wind. Too much wind even though temps reached 50 yesterday! Good news....not much wind next few days. Bad news......absolutely no shot of 50 degree weather at anytime this week. This will be a rough week on us as bitterly cold air and two shots of plowable snow on the way.
Today is a decent winter day with sun followed by clouds throughout the afternoon. Even though temps will be seasonably cold (afternoon highs 25-30) there won't be hardly any wind. Good day for taking the kids skiing! Those clouds continue to gather and will even toss a few flurries along the coastline early this evening.
As the evening grows late, the flurries will become a steady snow for much of the night. Unlike many of our winter storms, this latest storm will do most of its dirty work (in terms of snowfall) along the coastline. This map shows the snow potential for late tonight-midday Tuesday:
Needless to say, the morning commute on Tuesday will be rough. Adding to the fun will be arctic air arriving during the afternoon sending morning temps in the 20s into the teens by late day.
Some wicked cold air is in here for all day Wednesday & again on Thursday. Lows each of those mornings near zero and afternoon highs only in the teens. It will warm up on Friday but that warmer air is tied to a storm. That storm looks to bring another batch of snow--perhaps more widespread and heavier. Winter being winter.
JR, you didn't mention "the ugly"
Oh right-----Patriots second half last night. Plenty ugly.
