Colder, Windier Days Ahead

Snow has come to an end tonight. But the break will be short-lived. Flakes fly again tomorrow and perhaps Saturday morning. Even with some nuisance snow in the forecast, the big story is the harsh, potentially record breaking cold that follows this weekend.

Snow showers will redevelop again on Thursday. Once again activity will be hit or miss. Some towns will get very little or no snow while others could get a quick coating to an inch or two. Winds will pick up throughout the day with gusts up to 30 miles an hour. Temperatures will be much colder than recent days with highs in the 20s and wind chills in the 10s.

As bitter cold arrives Friday night into Saturday morning, there is one last shot at snow showers. This doesn’t look like much but it’s worth mentioning so you don’t get caught off guard.

Get your hats, scarves and gloves ready to go heading into this weekend. High temperatures will be in the teens both days. Low temperatures Sunday morning will be below zero and when you factor in the wind, it will feel more like -30 to -20 to start off the day!

The frigid blast only lasts a couple of days though. In fact, the next storm late Monday night into Tuesday may be mainly rain with temperatures in the 40s. All in a New England week!
