Get ready for Real Winter...

As I have mentioned many times before, weather goes in CYCLES.  After a record warm December over the eastern U.S., the 1st 2 weeks in January has brought back reality…and it will get worse before it gets better.  Finally Arctic air is in place as a series of storms will flow in from the Pacific.  Both the Euro & GFS are forecasting a major snowstorm for this weekend from Nashville thru D.C., Philly, NYC into Boston.  Models are forecasting 2-3 FEET !!!   If that were to happen, there will be serious travel problems as all the major airport hubs would shut down.  If you are planning a trip to the NE this weekend, pay attention to the weather.  The media will start describing it as “EPIC, HISTORIC, SNOWMAGEDON” .  They forget there are SUPPOSED  TO BE snowstorms in the Winter.   Let the hype begin!    Our issue locally could be some strong storms late Thursday followed by the coldest air of the season for Friday & Saturday.  Freezing temps may come to the South Shore with a moderate to hard freeze on the North Shore for both Saturday & Sunday mornings.   Until then, enjoy a brief warm up.    Stay tuned!
