The Bar is High
Posted by Pete Bouchard
While we wade through puddles and navigate snowbanks (via car or foot), the pattern remains active.
HOWEVER, the next round of wintery weather will be measured in flakes and inches - not in feet. And since the bar is so high after the blizzard, many will think this isn't even worthy of a paragraph in my blog...but I'll oblige nonetheless (what, you expect me to just talk about spring training?)
The bottom line is this storm won't have the power to heave the snow up into ALL of Southern New England. This storm system is beating-feet to the open Atlantic as it kisses us with a bit of snow.
Sure, there may be as much as 3" inches on Nantucket, but I'm more inclined to stick to the 1-2 than I am to up them (based on the latest trends).
OK, onward and upward. Although the pattern is active, the 'threat matrix' remains low. We'll watch another storm get freakishly large FAR offshore over the weekend, sparing us and Nova Scotia (a very snow-weary province). Wind and cold will be drawn down, but it's just for one day.
Rest of the forecast is rather late-winter like: bright afternoons, refreezing at night and eventually, a warmup late early next week.
