Boston Weather: 61.0°F | Overcast

Weather: Chilling Thoughts

By VeroniquÉ Bugnion
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Gusty winds on Monday morning chilled the air to an effective temperature of -51°F, the coldest feeling day in Beantown in almost twenty years. After the temperatures of the past two days, the forecasted high of 25°F for today will feel almost pleasant.

Although the prediction models do not fully agree on the timing and development of the next storm, Boston will likely get more snow on Thursday. The period of snowfall will, however, be fairly brief as the storm will rapidly move on toward the Canadian maritimes.

Expect another blast of Arctic air and strong winds on Friday and Saturday in the wake of the storm ... an already much too familiar thought.

Wednesday: Clear, high of 25°F (-4°C).

Wednesday night: Increasing cloudiness, low of 7°F (-14°C).

Thursday: Cloudy, snow likely, high of 28°F (-2°C).

Friday: Cloudy and windy, high around 15 to 20°F (-9 to -6°C).

Saturday: Partly cloudy, high around 15 to 25°F (-9 to -4°C)
