Lots of accident reports on the morning radio today. Sounds like just a low enough temperature and enough snow to make the roads treacherous. I know the errands I need to do to day may be done later today – if the roads get better – or I may have to wait until Friday. Tomorrow doesn’t sound much better. Not a good day out there today.
Currently 28 with a WSW wind of 7 mph making it feel like 20 degrees. Dew Point 24, Humidity 85%, Barometer 30.10 & rising, Visibility 0.6 mi., Sunrise 7:58 am, Sunset 5:06 pm. 70% chance of light morning snow. High 29. WSW winds 10 -15 mph.
Aside from the fluke, quick-hitting cold air mass just before Thanksgiving, the air has been quite tolerable. After a brief shot of well below average cold this week, the air is slated to warm mid month to near the end of the month. A white Xmas looks unlikely this year. Last year a white Xmas did not occur because the snow fell after 7 AM. 2.2″ was measured. It was my first sighting of snow falling on Christmas Day. Last winter ( Dec – Feb ) the 5th warmest in Boston. This winter is expected to be near average. The increasing artificial greenhouse and a weak magnetosphere should preclude a harsh winter here.
