This pattern six months from now would be labeled *awesome*….or perhaps *fantastic*—-several days of sunshine with the occasional cold front passing through but this week those cold fronts are going to re-enforce the arctic air in New England. The first front is passing through now which will send temps from the upper 20s into the upper teens later today. Wind chills will be in the single numbers. More seasonably cold weather is on tap for tomorrow. We try to warm things up on Friday but to no avail as yet another arctic front arrives by afternoon. This will set us up for a cold start to the weekend but recovery is quicker as Sunday those temps make a nice bounce into the 40s( mid 30s for the Pats game)! More cold air arrives after the Pats game Sunday night.
As for storminess…nope, not happening. These fronts will cruise through New England but they’ll only be able to generate a few clouds as they swing through the region. We just have a dry and seasonably cold (not bitter though) pattern for the next 5-10 days. Plow drivers/snow lovers are getting antsy—understood as December was loaded with warm storms and now that the cold is here the storms have ghosted on us. It appears our snowiest part of winter is likely February & March (much like winter ’06/’07).
At the risk of sounding like Depeche Mode….Enjoy The Silence….
