Not A Good Beach Day
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Unless you're an iceberg, not exactly beach weather the next couple of days. We have some wicked cold air around these parts--in fact, today is likely going to be our coldest day in 2 years as we spend the morning hours in the single numbers and only reach the mid teens by afternoon. That's just the cold. We will also have wind and that wind will drive wind chills down below zero for much of the day. Layers. Layers. Layers. Hey--at least the sun will be all bright & shiny! Bitterly cold once again for tonight with lows between -5 and + 5 in downtown Boston.
For tomorrow.....you can essentially just read that first paragraph over again. Arctic high pressure isn't moving the next 2 days which means the bitter air associate with that high pressure won't move much either so plan on another cold day. Plan on more sunshine too.
By Friday, we focus on a storm that will slide south of New England late in the day. Earlier this week, I thought we would see a lot of snow from this storm but now I think it will pass too far south of us providing only a glancing blow of snowfall. I does look like some light snow will fall Friday afternoon (after 4pm) and night mainly south of the MA Pike. A coating to an inch seems likely with perhaps 1-3" of snow down in Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands Friday Night. Sunshine & cold look to be around for the upcoming weekend.
