Massachusetts HEAVY RAIN Blasting In Sunday, Monday
Reports say that in Massachusetts HEAVY rain will be blasting in Sunday night, into Monday morning.
Well here we are on December 9, and we have seen ZERO plowable snow. Really, none at all in the Boston metro, and Metro West areas.
My friends with snow plows are scratching their heads wondering why they bought them, seeing that LAST year only had one plowable snow storm. It feels like we may getaway with another mild winter. Who can we thank?
We Can Thank El Nino
If we get the same deal this year, as we got last year, it could be a mild Winter. According to WBZ-TV:
Last year, we expected December to be the coldest month versus average of the season, and it was. This year, we expect the opposite. It should feature theand lowest chances for sustained snowfall. This would be the case with El Nino plus the +IOD on their own, but especially true since it appears the polar vortex will be in a strong state during most of the month.
The experts say that El Nino is the deathblow to Winter snow around here. What IS El Nino? It’s basically a weather activity that results in warmer water, and less snow.
Record Breaking NO Snow
According to Fox Weather, the LACK of snow in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia has broken a record for the LEAST snow:
Major cities in the Northeast, like New York City and Philadelphia, have broken records regarding snowfall – but not because there’s too much of the white stuff. Instead, it’s because it has been nearly 22 months since those cities have seen an inch of snow in a single calendar day from a winter weather event.
Massachusetts HEAVY RAIN
According to the bostonherald.com:
“Right now, it’s looking like it will be a pretty strong wind event for eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It will be a rather strong system coming into the region Sunday into Monday,” Kyle Pederson, meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Boston office, told the Herald on Friday.
Coastal flooding is also a major concern. The National Weather Service say that potentially we could get four inches of rain, and winds of up the 60 mph.
Check your generators, and Monday morning allow for more time, for your commute.
