Turning The Page
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Nasty storm pulling away from New England but not before dropping an easy 2 feet of snow across portions of the viewing area. The storm is gone but the arctic air is not. Wind chill temperatures will stay below zero for the remainder of the day and into tonight (10-20 below zero). The wind will fade away overnight but the air is still of arctic origins which means actual temperatures will drop below zero----even Boston may see temps briefly dip below zero--a feat not accomplished since January of 2011!
The weekend sees moderation of this arctic blast after 3-4 hours Saturday morning. By Saturday afternoon our temps will reach the mid 20s under a mostly sunny sky. By Sunday, it's downright balmy with early morning temps in the 20s & afternoon highs reaching the upper 30s. Sunday will also see an increase in cloud cover as well as a few rain showers/sprinkles by late afternoon. All in all, Sunday is a fantastic winter day for outdoor enthusiasts.
Monday is a brief warm up with morning rain showers & temps in the 40s but watch out for a flash freeze by Monday afternoon as temperatures will plummet into the 20s by late afternoon. Bitter air is back in New England for Tuesday-Thursday of next week.
Stay warm today.
