    Hi all!

    Just thought I would post an open mid-week blog.  Another big storm could hit the Northeast this weekend.  Stay tuned!

    Have a great rest of the week!


  • Record snow for Boston and more on the way...

    Snow continues to pile up over New England.  Some areas have already seen a foot and a half of new snow:

    And Boston is setting all kinds of records:

    Later this week through the weekend, the coldest air of the season arrives with many cities possibly breaking cold air records and struggling to get out of single digit temperatures:

    After a weekend of soaking (but beneficial) rain for Northern California and the Northwest, conditions will start improve.  Meanwhile,  much of the Plains are still enjoying above average temperatures!

    And in the not so great news, we’re watching the threat for another storm to bring more snow to the Northeast Thursday into Friday and possibly Sunday into Monday:

    Stay tuned…

    And P.S. today is the 4th birthday of my Theodore.  I can’t believe it’s been 4 years.  I never knew my heart could hold any more love until he came into our lives.

    Have a great day, all!


  • Stormy weather for both coasts, and a heat wave for the Plains!

    Hello everyone!

    We have a lot of weather affecting both coasts this weekend.   Let’s get started:

    Ongoing  snow showers will be on the increase across the Northeast.  While mainly light snow will fall through tomorrow, more moderate snow will develop Sunday night through early Tuesday.

    The heaviest snow totals for this multi-day event will be across Upstate New York and New England, where more than 12″ is likely by Tuesday.

    Coastal Southern New England, NYC, Central New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be spared of the heavy snow, but will have to deal with a slippery wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain overnight Sunday and into the commute on Monday:

    For places like Boston, this is incredible considering in just a week they’ve doubled their seasonal average.  It’s going to be hard to get rid of all this snow!

    Across the West Coast, we’ve also got a train of storms moving onshore:

    The heaviest rain and snow will fall from Northern California to the Northwest.

    And for the rest of the country, a nice taste of spring is in store for you with highs  20-30 degrees above average across the Plains today and tomorrow.

    The Mild air will build through the Ohio Valley and even the Mid-Atlantic this weekend.

    Wow.  That’s a  busy  forecast.  How’s the weather by you?

    Hi everyone!

    I’ll have  a complete update tomorrow — but looks like we’ve got another active winter storm pattern this week in the Northeast.  A nice chunk of the country will feel very springlike this weekend – and the West coast will see plenty of rain and mountain snow.    More details to come…stay tuned!


  • A quiet day today, but maybe more snow on the way?

    Hi All!

    The good news is Spring is 44 days away…

    And the bad news is…Spring is 44 days away!  HA!

    It’s very cold across the Northeast, and we’ve seen some big snow for New England – namely Boston.  Take a look at some of the statistics:

    Yesterday’s snow and wintry mix across the Northeast, followed by much colder overnight temperatures has roadways and surfaces across the region very slippery.  Temperatures will remain below freezing today.

    Meanwhile, the Pacific Northwest remains active as systems move onshore this week.  Heavy snow will also develop across the Rockies.  Part of the energy from these Pacific storms could fuel the next couple of rounds of possible snow over the Northeast later this week and this weekend.

    Here’s a look at the computer models we are looking at to forecast the next snow event:

    The latest round of computer models show much of the next storm system off-shore, but obviously something we’ll need to keep an eye on.

    I hope you’re all keeping warm!  For all our friends in the south, I am envious of your weather!  The first few snow storms are fun, and then it gets a little like…well…groundhog day!
