Having lived in the south for a number of winters (Charlotte NC), I do feel for those folks when they get blasted with a few inches of snow--they really don't have the snow removal or the savvy ability to drive in the snow like we do. For example, a number of cities & towns near the Cape Cod Canal are getting a modest burst of snow this morning (2-4" of snow). No gridlock, no school closings, no hatred toward the meteorologist. We've got this.
"This" being the storm that is heading out of New England rather fast. So fast that we'll get the sunshine back by noon and hold onto it through the afternoon. Despite the sun, our temps will only reach the mid 20s with a breeze adding a bit of a chill to the air. Skies are clear tonight with seasonably cold temps, teens.
Tomorrow is a fantastic winter day with sunny skies, seasonably cool temps and perhaps most importantly, no wind. That's huge this time of year for anyone who plans on spending any time outside. Temps will finish up near 30. Friday we see even milder air with daytime temps in the 30s. More clouds on Friday & even some snow flurries Friday evening.
Looking into the weekend, we try to warm but that results in clouds with patchy light snow, freezing rain and finally plain old rain Saturday afternoon into early Sunday morning. Nothing big but some of the roads across western/central MA could be slick if not treated. Something I know WE can handle here in New England.
