Hmm.....3 solid months of cold and snow......I'm out of blogging material folks. I mean...we've talked Polar Vortex ad nauseam...we've talked about how High Pressure in Alaska since Thanksgiving has dislodged arctic air in waves...or how how this winter pattern would feature stretches of storminess but also quiet weather for days. We're in one of those relatively quiet stretches right now with only some arctic fronts to talk about.
The first of these arctic fronts will pass through here tomorrow with a second one swinging through New England on Thursday afternoon. When these fronts come through here they will produce clouds and even some scattered snow showers. These snow showers will behave like their summertime cousins--the thunderstorms. No, there won't be any thundersnow but rather the scattered nature of the snow showers where Acton may get a 5-15 minute snow shower and yet Carlisle & Maynard may only see clouds. When these snow showers come through here a quick coating is likely.
These fronts will also reinforce the arctic chill so temps for the next several days will remain well below normal. Our normal afternoon temps should be in the low 40s but until the weekend, those afternoon temps will only be in the 20s. By the weekend, the temps begin to moderate a bit with daytime highs into the 30s.
