Boston Weather: 48.0°F | Overcast


No Snow in Sight

People anxious about snow might have to wait a little longer. No snow is in sight for at least the next few days. This is not out of the ordinary and we might well have to wait even longer — 16 years between 1891 and 2002 have recorded less than one inch of snow in December. Of course, a single storm might be able to pull the snow measurement up to the average of seven inches for this month.

Temperatures will drop today as a strong high pressure system moves over our region (1034 mb in the map). This high will bring clear skies and the relatively cold temperatures that are normal for this time of the year. After the passage of the anticyclone, a weakened front will sweep through, bringing warmer temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday and also the possibility of rain showers (only liquid precipitation though).
