New Month–Similar Pattern

 The winter that can’t stop (won’t stop) rolls on with more snow overnight. Most cities & towns picked up between 2-5″ of snow overnight. Still no seasonal record for Boston but now we’re just about 3″ of snow away from history and with most of March still in front of us it’s only a matter of time.

No more snow today and even better is no arctic air as high temps soar into the mid-upper 30s under a mostly sunny sky. The only knock I have on the remainder of the day is the wind. That wind will crank by afternoon with gusts between 20-40mph. The wind fades this evening and temps drop back into the teens. Sunshine starts the day on Tuesday before our next storm arrives at night.

This next storm for tomorrow night & early Wednesday is messy as it will begin as snow mid-late evening but then change over to freezing rain and eventually rain by early Wednesday morning. Before the changeover it looks like 1-3″ of snow then .25″ of rain likely. The rain quickly tapers to drizzle on Wednesday. Temps are cold tomorrow on the front end of the storm–20s–by Wednesday those temps should reach the low 40s before more cold air returns Thursday. This return to cold air early Thursday may bring a period of snow too…more on this tomorrow.

March can indeed be maddening.
