Hunker For The Clunker

 No way to really spin this one so I won’t…today is a clunker. Periods of rain for much of the day as temps crawl through the 30s. Thankfully, we melted nearly a foot of snow this past week so even though most of us pick up between 1/2 and 1 inch of rain I’m not overly worried about flooding. There could be a little street flooding where snow/once happens to clog a storm drain. The rain should taper to drizzle around 6-7pm allowing those of you on pub crawls to only deal with drizzle.

For Sunday we are still under the influence of today’s storm but that storm will be much weaker. The storm will also be able to tap into colder air and that means instead of drizzle & rain showers I think some flurries and snow showers are likely tomorrow. The window of snowflake opportunity is from 11am until 5pm—not to say it snows for everyone for 6 straight hours—and this will include the parade in Southie. As for accumulating snow…perhaps a coating-1″ north of town on cold surfaces….roads themselves will just be wet as temps hover in the mid 30s.

Looking into next week, Monday offers sunshine and seasonal temps…mid & upper 40s. A sea breeze kicks in for coastal areas which will pin your temps in the low 40s. St. Patrick’s day offers similar weather…partly sunny skies & temps in the low to mid 40s. Much colder weather returns for the middle & end of next week.

Enjoy your weekend!
