Too Little, Too Late

Meteorology. Such an interesting field of work I chose....I digress. The storm that I barked about yesterday still formed, still created this wicked snow showers that are producing heavy snowfall rates---only, they are about 40-60 miles of where I thought the would be. The result?.......not much in the way of snow this morning. There will be a few snow showers up on Cape Ann as well as Cape Cod (perhaps even 2 or 3 snow showers in the Worcester hills), otherwise a mix of sun & clouds for the day. What will happen is bitter cold air will flood southern New England the next 2 days. This arctic assault arrives during the day on fiesty northwest winds keeping wind chills in the teens for much of the day.
Bitter cold air is expected overnight with many towns away from the ocean near zero and even along the coast--including downtown Boston will see overnight lows between 5-10 above zero. That arctic air is also dry air so get those humidifiers cranking later today & tonight. Mainly clear skies.
Wednesday-Thursday will be all about the bitter cold and not just during the morning commute but also coffee break time, lunchtime as well as after school activities will offer cold cold temps. High temps on Wednesday & Thursday won't see 20!! That sun will shine but only play the role of 'good friend' rather than source of heat.
Friday. Friday offers a shot at some more snow (hahaha--I know what you are thinking). This next storm offers a better chance at seeing a plowable snow by afternoon & evening. More on that possible storm later in the week.
