Mike’s inclement Saturday night forecast

February 21, 2015 - Picnic Time

INSTEAD BACKED UP AS THE STORM AND SNOWFALLS AROUND THE. THAT IS A MESS. AT THE START OF THE STORY, THE TRUCKS WERE SLIDING DOWN THE HILL. we WONDERED THOSE ARE THE CONDITIONS WE ARE ABOUT TO GET. LET’S HOPE NOT. we THINK WE MAY BE SEEING A SITUATION LIKE THIS. we NEED TO SHOW YOU WHAT WAS GOING ON THIS MORNING. THAT WILL SET THE STAGE FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. LOOK AT THE MORNING LOWS, 10, 15 DEGREES BELOW ZERO. NORWOOD DROPPED DOWN TO 21 DEGREES BELOW ZERO. EVEN THE CAPE HAD TEMPERATURES BELOW ZERO. WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT? WE TAKE OUR TEMPERATURE READING AT THE FIVE FOOT LEVEL. IT HAS BEEN COLD THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. IT HAS BEEN COLD THE ENTIRE MONTH. THESE ARE THE HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS MONTH. EVEN THOUGH WE ARE TALKING ABOUT RAIN, GET WILL BE HITTING COLD SURFACES. THAT CREATES FREEZING RAIN. WE HAVE SNOW ACROSS THE AREA, FLIGHT TO STUDY — LIGHT TO STEADY. TOWARD THE CAPE, WE ARE SEEING LIGHT SNOW. HERE COMES THE RAIN. THAT IS NO PICNIC. IN MANY WAYS, we WOULD PREFER SNOW. BETWEEN NOW AND 2:00, WE START TO WARM UP A LITTLE BIT. STILL SNOWING IN MOST AREAS. WE START TO ADD SOME RAIN TO THE SITUATION. PLYMOUTH UP TO 35 DEGREES BY 1:00 IN THE MORNING. BUT THAT IS AS FAR NORTH AS THIS LINE GETS. IT COLLAPSES BACK DOWN. THE RAIN AND SNOW STARTS TO TAPER OFF TOMORROW MORNING. WE WILL HAVE TEMPERATURES IN THE 30’S. THAT IS HERE, NOT AT YOUR FEET. THAT MEANS IT WILL BE ICY IN MANY LOCATIONS. TOWARDS THE CAPE, IT WILL BE ONE INCH OF MOISTURE. INLAND, MUCH LESS. IF IT WAS COLDER OVER THE CAPE, we WOULD BE TALKING ABOUT A FOOT OF SNOW. IT WILL BE EVENING SNOW CHANGING TERRAIN. THIS AREA WILL LOAD OF THE SNOWPACK. IN HERE, WE WILL SEE RAIN PERHAPS LOOTING OF THE SNOWPACK AS WELL. FREEZING RAIN ON THOSE SURFACES, ANYTHING UNTREATED WILL BE ICY. SNOWFALL TOTALS ONLY ABOUT THREE TO SIX INCHES. YOU HAVE WARM AIR MIXING IN HERE, THAT IS WHY IT WILL BE A DUSTING TO TWO INCHES. KEEP IN MIND IT IS HEAVY, WET SNOW WITH ICE ASSOCIATED. THAT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE STORMS SO FAR. THE ROADS WILL BE VERY SLIPPERY. WE HAVE CLOGGED DRAINS. WATER WILL NOT FLOW AWAY QUICKLY. THAT GIVES IT A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO FREEZE. ADDITIONAL WEIGHT COULD BE ADDED TO ROOFS TOMORROW. we THINK WE ARE GOING TO BE SEEING A LOT OF CLOUD COVER TOMORROW. BUT IT WILL BE RELATIVELY MILD COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH LATELY. BOSTON WILL SEE THE TEMPERATURE CLIMBING THROUGH THE 30’S, CLOSE TO THE NORMAL HIGH. TOMORROW MAY BE YOUR BEST DAY FOR SEEING MELTING BECAUSE IT WILL BE COLD. HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW WILL LOOK LIKE THIS. A FEW LOCATIONS GETTING CLOSE TO 40. COULD NOT MANY. BUT NOT MANY. THAT WILL PROBABLY BE THE WARMEST DAY FOR A WHILE BECAUSE THE ARCTIC BLAST IS COMING BACK. LOOK AT THE HIGH TEMPERATURE MONDAY, ONLY 18 DEGREES. LIGHT SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. IT WAS LOOKING LIKE WE MIGHT HAVE A BIG STORM. RIGHT NOW, GOOD NEWS. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL MISS US WITH LIGHT SNOW. IT WILL BRING COLDER AIR TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK. REMEMBER, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CLOSE TO 40 DEGREES THIS TIME OF YEAR. WE DON’T HAVE ANY 40’S IN THIS
