                                Breaking news on this Sunday Morning January 23, 2011.. The Northernstream is sending a week low pressure center west to east through New England with light snow Tuesday,1"-3" central and north. This is a warm front, temperatures mayapproach 40 at the south Coast by Sunset Tuesday, making this a veryquick in and out Arctic Shot. The Wednesday Storm is delayed until lateor at night, and will have rain near the coast, much like last Tuesday,but with out the icing. and the rain/snow line closer to the shore...

                     Sunshine and light wind made for a Pretty Winter day Saturday January22, 2011. But a storm over North Carolina dropped 7" of snow on theOuter Banks, with NE gusts to 40 mph. This Nor'Easter will actuallymiss New England. We are in a cold and stormy pattern, with a snow, ormix, likely every three to five days right into February. We also seethe -47 isotherm over Hudson Bay Canada, the coldest air in two yearsfor our side of the North Pole. That arctic air is continually refreshedwith the current cross polar flow from Siberia. Couple that with theparade of storms rolling in from the Pacific Ocean, and we get thestorms making news one after the next.
    How cold will it be? Mondaywill be the coldest of the winter so far. But likely not as cold asthese records (from Boston NWS). The next storm arrives Wednesday, maylast into Thursday. It looks the same as the last few storms, withdouble digit snowfall and an icy mix near the shore.
