Arctic air mass brings chilly temperatures

A frontal passage early this morning brought the first snow showers of the season to our region. While at the time of this writing it was unknown whether Logan Airport would record measurable snowfall, it would be comparable timing to the date of the first snowfall last year (on Nov. 7, 2012, 0.10” of snow was recorded at Logan Airport).

Strong cold air advection and gusty winds behind the cold front will bring Arctic air into our region for the next day and a half. With high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s°F and low temperatures in the 20s°F, it will be the coldest weather we have experienced this fall.

The chilly temperatures will not last long, though, as a high pressure system is established to our south. The flow around this high pressure will bring milder temperatures, with highs in the low to miw xd 50s°F on Thursday into the weekend.
