Pesky snows are the rule this week. Yesterday’s storm dropped anywhere from 2-5″ of snow across SE MA and little to now snow from Boston & cities north & west. That storm moved away but sadly the clouds have lingered thanks to a trof of low pressure (NORLUN trof is its name). This trof will hang near the coastline for the entire day locking clouds in and patches of light snow/flurries. Farther inland, the sun shines. Temps for all are decent with most places near 30—some absolutely awesome weather for skiing today! More light snow along the coast–especially from Boston up into NH–is on the way tonight as that trof wobbles away from us and into Maine. Our *special* map in the maps section details the snowfall potential for today-tonight.
Tomorrow an arctic front will blast through here during the morning with some scattered snow showers. This front will also send morning temps in the 20s down into the low teens by evening and an increasing wind will drive wind chills below zero by late day. Friday is another bitter day (like Monday) with morning temps below zero and afternoon highs only in the teens.
The weekend will start with sunshine & cold temps on Saturday but on Sunday our next storm takes aim on us. Unfortunately this next storm is going to have enough mild air to change early snow over to freezing rain & rain during the day on Sunday. Rain is the last thing we need right now. It looks like up to an inch of rain is possible (after 1-3″ of snow). I’d rather it be all snow.
