Quiet Into The Weekend

It’s another cold start to the day…. what else is new?   Temperatures this afternoon remain well below the average (40) as highs reach the mid 20s. At least we’ll catch a mix of sun and clouds and winds will be relatively light.

The light winds are great in the day, but do allow temperatures to tumble at night.  In fact, clear skies, calm winds and a deep snowpack sends many suburbs back below 0 tonight as lows range from -10 in the burbs to +10 in the city. 

We’ll start the weekend off cold, but tons of sun and little wind allows for a great weekend for sledding and skiing with highs in the upper 20s Saturday and lower 30s Sunday. Sunday does feature an increase of clouds with light snow breaking out after sunset.

Snow Sunday Night:
-Steady light snow breaks out by 7pm, steadiest a few hours either side of midnight, tapers off to flurries by 5am Monday for most.
-All snow event, although a few rain drops may mix in across the Islands
-2-4″ the general range for snow, most of it melts Monday afternoon with sunshine and temps rising to near 40

Quiet weather hangs in here for Tuesday.

Tuesday night-Wednesday will feature a brief period of snow/ice changing to rain.

February will go down as the 2nd coldest on record for Boston and snowiest month by far.  It’s been a tough run the last 5 weeks, but hang in there, Spring is just around the corner! The sun angle gets higher and higher in the sky, and even in past winters with big snows, the 2nd half of March can steadily wither away that snowpack.
