Flakes Fly, Cold Holds

No doubt it was the cold and the stinging wind that were the weather story yesterday. Today, the cold holds, but we replace the strong winds with some patchy snow this morning. There will still be a cold breeze, it just won’t be as brutal as yesterday’s. In terms of the snow, it’s more of a festive feel than a shut down shop type event, although it’ll create a few travel headaches for some.  With the cold air deeply entrenched across New England, snow easily sticks to the roads, so even just a coating will create some slick spots. From Boston to Worcester, that’s about all we get, a coating, with a coating to an inch of fluff near and south of Route 44 in Southeast Mass, and even the chance for up to a couple inches of snow around Buzzards Bay, the Cape and Islands. It’s a dry snow too, so it’ll be fairly easy to brush it off the car or sweep it off the steps. This afternoon, many of us see some sun return with highs near 30.

With lighter winds tonight and clearing skies, it’ll be easier for the temps to drop off away from the city, producing morning lows tomorrow around daybreak in the single digits in the burbs and about 17 in Boston.

We trend just a couple degrees “milder” for the weekend with highs in the lower 30s Saturday and Sunday in Southern New England. Although a few flurries/snow showers are possible Friday night into early Saturday, much of the weekend is dry. Great ski weekend to be had across New England as southern New England resorts make lots of snow the next few days and Ski Country not only makes more snow, but also enjoys the solid foot of snow they received with Tuesday’s hit. Temps across Ski Country run in the low 20s for highs on average this weekend.

Stay warm and have a great day!
