Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary
Hello Merrimack Valley!!
After yesterday’s taste of Winter Storm Mars, its back to the routine on this Tuesday morning! With six locations across Southeastern MA officially reporting blizzard conditions (high winds, very limited visibility, and periods of intense snowfall), the City of Boston officially reported picking up about 6.5”.
Overnight some picked up an additional 1-2” of light fluff, but that’s about it…for now...Today will be dry and cloudy with temps hanging out around freezing and winds from the Northeast. Later this afternoon a batch of energized air will sweep across the area and will develop offshore. As of now its looking like a dusting to 2” across the South Shore, Cape & Islands-a dodged bullet once again.
Wednesday will be quiet after those snow showers head out leaving us with mostly cloudy skies and temps in the 30s. But ready for not, here it comes-an Arctic blast is en route just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend! A strong batch of high pressure will pour in from the North for Thursday followed by even colder air Friday-we’re talking low 10s and single digits with wind chills even lower! Scattered flurries and snow showers could sneak in Saturday, but this cold air could mean staying in by the fire with your Valentine!
