Everybody Just Calm Down
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
I think wind is really the enemy this time of year and that was never more true than yesterday. Wind chills spent much of the day below zero because winds were gusting between 20-30 mph. Today, that wind is a little fiesty (nor sure why, it is Friday) for a few hours this morning but as we step into the afternoon there won't be much wind out there----in fact, winds will be.....calm. Also, the core of the bitter air is now leaving and by afternoon our temperatures will reach the lower 20s. Lower 20s & little wind will go a long way to making it more tolerable when outside. We will also see some clouds take over the sky as the day grows longer.
These clouds I blog about are tied to a tiny storm that will zip south of New England later today & tonight. It's too far away to mess up date night but it will create some flurries & even patchy light snow from 9pm until 3am (Haha---that's some date if you're still on the roads at 3am!) . You folks on the cape/islands will see some steadier snow tonight and because of this plan on 1-2" of snow by early Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday (and the weekend for that matter) offer a mix of sun & clouds with seasonably cold temps--afternoon highs each day in the mid & upper 20s. Some wind is around each day to make it feel a bit colder.
Looking into next week, our weather stops coming from Yellowknife,Canada and instead Seattle, Washington....translation: warmer weather. We will go through some weather swapping out our climates. Clouds & patchy light snow are likely on Monday afternoon, while rain showers will be with us on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
