Sun and Clouds Over the Next Few Days

The only issue with the Patriots game - at least weatherwise - will be the wind.

    Another big wind event rattled New England today.

    Gusts topped the 50 miles per hour mark across most of coastal Massachusetts, while closer to the storm's center in Central and Eastern Maine, gusts were generally in the 20-25 range. It stands to reason: the closer you are to the storm, typically the lower the winds (at least in non-tropical systems).

    Onward to some peace and quiet: Sun and clouds will blend over the next few days. There will be cold starts - what else would you expect from January? - but also some decent finishes. The high will close in on freezing tomorrow, then surge ahead to near 40 on Friday.

    This warm-up is setting the stage for the next storm, which is working off of marginal cold for snow, with winds turning in off of ocean water temperatures that are around 40 degrees (about normal for this time of year) in Southern New England. Perhaps some mixing will occur in Greater Worcester and a genuine light snow with limited accumulations in Western Massachusetts, but the farther you are from this storm, the less precipitation you will see.

    Also of note, the storm timeline has jumped ahead about 6-8 hours! Seems the only issue with the Pats game will be the wind - and the Chiefs.

    Enjoy the rest of your workweek.
