Snowbanks & Puddles
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
No new snow, sleet or eve rain today. Yay. The next two days offer some quiet weather as well as mild weather with temps today and again on Wednesday reaching the low & mid 40s. Shrinking snowbanks & growing puddles. The only knock on today is that dang wind as many towns will have gusty conditions for much of the day, robbing that warm feel to the air. All in all, decent winter day in store. Tomorrow is similar but less wind.
We have another storm heading up the east coast late Wednesday night & early Thursday morning. It will not be a blizzard and if you live north of the MA Pike you can actually skip ahead a paragraph. The storm will scoot south of New England making its closest pass in the early morning hours of Thursday. Snow will fall lightly from metro Boston out toward Worcester (as well as points south) very early Thursday morning. The snow will be a little steadier toward Buzzards Bay-Cape-Islands for the storm. It's also a quick moving storm so look for the last flakes to fly by 9am Thursday morning. In terms of accumulations, coating-2" along & south of MA Pike and 2-4" toward the canal with a little more likely out on Cape Cod. The *special* map in our maps section has greater detail.
Quiet weather resumes from midday Thursday into the start of the weekend. There is a renewed risk of another snowstorm late in the weekend. As of now the storm looks to stay just offshore to bother us but the storm will form, it's just a matter of just how close to the coast. We'll have a much better handle on that by Thursday.
Ciao for now
