For some perspective... It's our coldest morning since February 3rd. Dress for a chill, not just this morning. After wake-up teens, brace for highs only 30-35 degrees across southern New England. That is 10-15 degrees below normal.
If you're heading to the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Southie at 1 PM, plan on temps in the lower 30s with wind chills in the 20s. Try to stand on the 'sunny' side of the street, it'll help!
Temperatures will slowly improve early next week, but remain below average. Spring officially arrives on Tuesday at 12:15 PM. Highs will be limited to the 30s with increasing clouds. We're monitoring a system offshore that looks to keep precipitation over the ocean. If it waivers closer, we may see some night flurries.
What we know is that there WILL be a storm (or even two) forming to our south. The track, though, is uncertain until it actually starts to come together. Please stay tuned to the possibility of snow, rain and wind Wednesday PM to Thursday.
This morning, it looks to have minimal precipitation and accumulation, but I expect shifts in the forecast over the next couple days. A closer shift would give us a stronger storm locally with more widespread impacts. If it moves farther away, we might just get light precipitation at the coast or Cape... Maybe even a total miss!
