After that, our weekend storm begins and continues through much of the day on Sunday. I want to reiterate there’s nothing unique about this particular storm: It just happens to be the first storm of the year and for downtown Boston, it’s the first time there’s been any measurable snow this season.There are still questions as to how much snow we will ultimately measure when this is all done. The length of time that we see mixing Sunday morning and how quickly that mixing begins will have a tremendous impact on final snow totals. Precipitation will be falling so hard that just a two-hour difference could raise or lower snowfall by 3 inches. There’s no way any of us are going to be able to predict … [Read more...] about Boston weather forecast: Timing affects how much snow we’ll get

Fox Globe Staff and Globe Correspondent January 17, 2019 So much for those low snow totals. Forecasters are predicting as much as a foot of snow in Boston over the weekend as a low-pressure system moves through the Northeast, potentially bringing the season’s first big snowfall. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for all of Massachusetts from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.But as with any weather forecast, there could be some surprises.

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Epstein Globe Correspondent January 17, 2019 Perhaps it’s the low snowfall totals we’ve accumulated so far this winter that’s making the curiosity around Sunday’s storm so high, but let’s just say right off the bat that there’s nothing really unique about this system.It’s not a monster storm. It won’t break snowfall, tidal, or wind records. Fifty years ago next month, it snowed for 100 hours in Boston without a break. This storm will likely precipitate for around 24 hours. The storm has the potential to bring a high volume of mixed snow and sleet to the eastern part of the state, including Boston, but since the storm is still 72 hours away, you can expect some changes in the forecast.

"Yuck-tober". Weather Pattern Looks Very Wet October? More like Yuck-tober. Yesterday was character-building, especially on the highways. I'm still struck by the number of motorists who don't turn on their headlights during foul weather. That, and road-spray made it hard to see more than 25 feet ahead - like driving in a blizzard. Light rail is looking better and better. October is a month of long shadows and dizzying weather extremes. We'll probably see our first slushy commute later this month, but expect more 60s, even a few more 70s. The sloppy pattern that kicked off in September drags on into early next week. We get a break today, with a shot at 60F. 70s Wednesday will feel good, but watch for a shower or T-storm. More rain arrives late Thursday into early Friday, and a nearly stationary front stuck over Iowa will surge north Sunday with more puddles. A few inches of additional rain may fall next Monday and Tuesday. There will be no shortage of topsoil moisture heading into … [Read more...] about ECMWF: 3-4″ Additional Rain Next 10 Days
