First Friday of February
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Wow---just like that it's February 1st. Winter is flying by and with days like yesterday it makes it go by faster. Today, it's back to reality with seasonably cold conditions. Daytime temps will hover near 33 but a gusty wind will make it feel like 23. That sun will share the sky with clouds for much of the day. Clear & cold weather tonight.
The weekend offers a continuation of cold but not bitter cold---just regular cold. Morning temps each day will be in the teens while afternoon highs reach the low 30s. Perhaps more importantly, much less wind on Saturday & Sunday---huge this time of year. We have sunshine tomorrow but on Sunday there will be a little storm that slides south of New England during the afternoon & evening hours. Once again, not a blockbuster but travel may get affected after 4pm Sunday--especially along the south shore (Rt 3)--and through Sunday evening. Snowfall totals look weak----1-3" with most of the snow confined to the coast.
Looking into next week, still no major snowstorms and no spring previews either as the jet stream will flow out of Canada and into the southeastern United States. That means seasonably cold weather for much of the week!
Best part of February is the amount of daylight we pick up--71 minutes!!
Have a great weekend!
