Winter Is Coming

48 Hours in my backyard! From a winter wonderland
to a slushy mess!
After a warm start to the work week with highs in the 50s today, winter has returned!

Temperatures will crash tonight turning wet roads to icy roads. This isn’t record cold.  Nor will tonight’s temps compare to the chill from Friday night into Saturday morning. But it will still feel pretty brutal at the bus stop Tuesday morning with wind chills ranging from -20 to -5.  High temperatures will be in the teens with sub zero wind chills all day.

 Temperatures will slowly rebound this week.  Winter sports enthusiasts will not like the forecast for this weekend with high temperatures in the 40s and periods of rain on Saturday.

The rollercoaster ride continues. That’s nothing new for us here in New England.

Tonight: Clearing, chance for a snow squall in spots. 5-15.

Tomorrow: Clear to partly cloudy, cold! High temperatures in the mid to upper teens. But sub zero wind chills all day!

Wednesday: Cold despite plenty of sunshine. Not as windy. High temperatures in the lower 20s inland, middle 20s for the shoreline.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Clouds mixing in late and at night. Not as cold. High temperatures on either side of the 30 degree mark.

Friday: Mostly cloudy. High temperatures in the middle 30s inland, upper 30s for the shoreline.
