Welcome to my weather blog. I've been a weather enthusiast since the late 1950's. Growing up on the North end of Worcester Ma. I had a neighbor who was a Meteorologist. As a Cub Scout I would spend a lot of my weekends learning about the weather. Back then forecasting the weather was done on a white board and marking pencil. I remember back in the 60's Don Kent one of New England's most noted Meteorologist forecasting a beautiful day in Feb. what a mistake that was for we had 6" of snow on that beautiful day. While Don Kent was doing his weather report on television the cameramen were throwing snowballs at him.
Anyways lets look at this GREAT New England weather. Seems like this is the Winter that just won't quit. Not having much snow before Christmas along with above normal temperatures for the month of December we sure are making up for it now. Since December 26th we have been in a stormy weather pattern that has no signs of letting up. We have high pressure and cold temps to our North and warm weather to our south, this sets up for a series of low pressure centers to traverse across the country bringing record snowfall to most of the major cities along the East Coast.
With having anywhere from 2 to 3 feet of snow already on the ground the forecast is calling for more snow starting Tuesday late afternoon continuing through Thursday morning. Snowfall amounts will be on the Average of 12 to 15 inches with lesser amounts towards the east coast and Cape Cod along with central and Southern Ct. and RI. where there will be a change over to rain. Some sleet will occur in Southern Worcester county keeping the snow amount less, some where in the 6 - 12 inch range. Enjoy the snow. I'll update as more information becomes available.
