Teeth of The Storm

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As some wrestled with the commute (a few vowing to never to do it again) and the heavy snow, we noted the (almost instant) intensification of the storm over Eastern Long Island:

Note the "dreadlocks" in the radar image in Long Island Sound (just outside of Bridgeport, CT). Those indicate gravity waves (huh?) in the upper atmosphere. Essentially, the storm is going bananas, deepening at a rate that is difficult for the weather models to track. In fact, right after this I grabbed this image, thunderstorms erupted south of Nantucket! And if you're a snow nut, you know what this means....intense snow in the next few hours.

Nevertheless, we're holding tight to our amounts thanks to a quick exit by midnight:

As the night wears on, the snow will wind down and the showers lift off Cape Cod. Where it warmed into the low 30s (Cape Cod), the rush of cold air will freeze things up overnight as the storm pulls away. Beware of black ice!

Tomorrow is the end game. The end of the stormy pattern, the end of the arctic air, and the beginning of the end of the snow. Some melting in the short term, mega melting in the long (this weekend).

More updates as necessary.

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:


*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
