Errand Day Tomorrow
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Wow! Sub freezing all the way to D.C. Now that's cold. Thankfully, the arctic air will retreat tomorrow allowing us to get near freezing. Wind will become an issue however, as the arctic air peels back. We're all quiet tomorrow too, so there's still plenty of time to get your errands done (but please don't clean out the bread isle).
Fun starts on Saturday with travel going downhill by afternoon and evening:
Here's the nitty gritty:
- Startup is mid AM on Saturday with nuisance flakes and flurries. Steadier snow waits until the late afternoon and evening. Heaviest snow (and the changeover for some) will be late night Saturday (around SNL time).
- Sunday the storm pulls out early, but we'll see it change back to snow where the rain was. Could be some light accumulation through early Sunday afternoon.
- Winds will be coming off the water, but tides should behave themselves. Astronomically high tide was last weekend.
- It's just a December storm, folks. This isn't a blizzard or nor'easter, and it's coming on the weekend. Take it easy and kick back.
And for your amounts:
Those intersecting lines often befuddle a lot of folks. Consider this: draw a line from Haverhill down to Topsfield, over to Wakefield, down to Waltham and out to Marlboro. North & west of that line, you have mostly snow and your highest amounts. South (and east) of that line, you have the kitchen sink: snow, sleet, rain and slop.
Might be some more fine tuning to the forecast, so keep us tuned in and bookmarked.
