Winter’s Mix to Rain Today

With residual cold air in place this morning, a bit of light snow and flurries breaks out before we flip over to a brief period of freezing to rain inland, and mainly rain close to the coast. Although the snow/ice totals won’t be impressive, it only takes a little bit of it to create some slick spots, thus the winter weather advisory that’s in place northwest of Route 128 until 1:00PM and until 4:00PM west of Worcester County.

Low level cold air can be tough to scour out well away from the coast, and some spotty freezing rain will hold on for several hours in interior Worcester County from mid morning to early afternoon. It won’t be a big ice event, but a couple one hundredths of an inch will be good enough for a solid glaze and some slick spots on untreated surfaces.

By mid to late afternoon, we’re all above freezing as rain showers take over and even some cracks of thunder possible over Southeast Mass with temps running 45-50 near the coast!

We dry out this evening and usher in the cold air overnight and for tomorrow. Other than a morning passing snow shower or squall tomorrow, the flavor of the day is cold and windy. Highs hold in the 20s and wind chills run between 8-14 with winds gusting 30-40mph.

Cold air linger into Thursday and Friday with a touch of light snow along the south coast of New England Thursday and perhaps some light snow again Friday night.

Have a great day.
