Just hours before the first day of winter, a powerful nor'easter brushed the SouthCoast with snow accumulations in the 4 inch range. One year ago to the day (Dec 19-20) a snow storm dumped over 15 inches in Fairhaven and Acushnet. Although we were spared a major snow event this time, it still was enough to get the snow plows on the road. Strong northerly winds brought wind chills into the low teens as the storm continued to intensify out at sea. Another significant snow event is possible during the mid to late holiday weekend. Stay Tuned.
This Morning Dec 22, 2010; The temp at 730AM was 31.6 with winds out of the Northwest at 9MPH, wind chill 25 degrees, water temp 36.5. A possible storm is anticipated for the holiday weekend.
A gale S of Nova Scotia today will exit the wrn Atlantic very slowly late this week. Rough seas will linger through Thu. A high pressure may briefly arrive for Sat. Another low pres should approach from the S sometime late sun into Mon.
