Flakes are flying, cold winds are blowing…. it will feel and look like January in southern New England today.
The flurries and snow showers are minor with a quick dusting expected in spots as an upper-level disturbance pinwheels through. Most of the flurries will dry up this afternoon with skies clearing through the end of the day and evening.
Meanwhile, the temperatures are getting colder. Highs will be about 10F colder than yesterday and the winds will make it feel even colder. Wind chills will be stuck in the 20s.
Think today is cold? Wait till you step outside tomorrow. We’ll kick off Friday with temperatures as low as 15-20F and wind chills will be in the single digits.
Another day of biting winds, will keep the “feel like” in the ‘teens.
Cold high pressure will build over head this weekend, and will help to block an ocean storm from heading our way.
Our computer models are in good agreement with a track that brings the storm off the Carolina coastline by Sunday morning and then well southeast of Nantucket through Sunday night. On that path, we’ll likely see extra clouds… possibly a few flurries near the shore…. but no significant impacts.
