Frigid Sunday

Temperatures have remained in the upper teens to lower 20's this afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. Last night after I posted I looked out the window at about 11PM and it was snowing out pretty good, actually as hard as it came down all day. So, the snow fall totals posted earlier are all wrong. We can easily add 1" to 2.5" to all of the totals below.

Here in Woburn, we finished off with about 3.5" of snow. Rockport, on the North Shore finished off the storm with a healthy 6" and Keene, NH finished off the storm with OVER 10"! I guess the bust call was not as bad as I previously thought.

Anyway, the next few days looks to be very quiet and cold. Next chance of any snow looks to be Monday night, but only a few flurries or light snow. No accumulations are expected. Also, for Thursday, it looks today that the storm is going to be much warmer and weaker from yesterday's runs of the GFS. Looks to be a light event and a snow at the start to a light mix to plain rain situation with any appreciable snows in central and northern New England, but even there it looks to be a very light event. It still is a good four and half days away so things will likely change so stay tuned and watch your local weather reporters and stay tuned to this blog for any further information or a possible snowfall accumulation map.

After Thursday, it looks to get cold again, but not as bad as today and tomorrow. Expect highs around 30 Friday and Saturday.


Looks like March is going to begin very cold and then by the middle to end of the month it looks like the current pattern we are in will flip, as the NAO will likely trend positive, and storm systems will go west of us and bring in wet, not white, storms with unlimited springlike warmth. For all those people ready to have spring fever, just wait about another 10-15 days you will be able to enjoy the weather again, like you did during "June"uary.

Next post tomorrow or Tuesday.
