Back to Cool...

By Michael C. Morgan
Staff Meteorologist

The relatively mild weather of the past few days will be history as cold air slowly sinks southward over the area. A developing cyclone will track to the northeast from the Delaware coast this morning. The cyclone will be just to the southeast of Cape Cod by early afternoon, and well to the east of New England by sunset. With the cold air in place, and abundant moisture, this relatively fast moving cyclone will drop 2-5 inches (5-13 cm) of snow across the area. Locations to the southeast of Boston could see 6 inch (15 cm)totals. Following the passage of this cyclone, breezy cold conditions will follow. A period of unsettled weather is anticipated Friday into Saturday.

Today:Snow, heaviest around noon. Winds north-northeast 10-15 mph (16-24 kph)becoming north-northwest during the afternoon. High 28F (-2C).

Tonight: Clearing and cold. Low 10F (-12C).

Thursday: Brilliant sunshine fading behind late afternoon high cloudiness; colder. High 23-28F (-6 to -2C). Winds northwest 10-15 mph (16-24 kph).

Friday: Cloudy with snow developing. Snow may change to sleet or freezing rain. High 30-35F (-1 to 2C). Low 28-30F (-2 to -1C).
