Hurricane Jose

Jose is headed north to Massachusetts but is expected to take a turn to the east before reaching us. The storm will also weaken before reaching us because of the colder water temperatures in the north. Even though we are not getting a direct hit from this storm we will feel some if its effects. southeastern mass is expected to get over an inch of rain and some winds of 35 mph. There is a chance of some power outages so be sure to charge all your electronic devices. If anything changes I will blog about it.

Irma

Another hurricane is headed towards The US. Hurricane Irma is a category 4 hurricane headed towards Florida. Most of Southern Florida has been evacuated and schools are closed until further notice. The storm is scheduled to hit Florida sometime early Sunday with winds estimated to be 150 mph. I hope my family and friends (along with everyone else down there) stay safe.




 I heard the governor of Florida say "We can rebuild your house but we can't rebuild your life" He is asking everyone to evacuate to a safe area. Most people are listening to all the warnings so highways have been packed. This is one road Thursday afternoon



Irma is expected to be a category 4 when it hits southern Florida and then weaken as it travels inward.








Before hitting Florida Irma destroyed so many small islands and those Islands are getting a one two punch as Hurricane Jose is headed their way



Here in Massachusetts we wait to hear if we will get any remnants from these storms. I'll keep you posted

Hurricane Season

The time now is both Hurricane season and back to school season. I can still remember a year when we had a "hurricane day" and had to postpone the opening day of school.
Today all eyes are on Texas as hurricane Harvey hits. Hoping that everyone stays safe.
I just want to make sure New Englanders don't miss a potential storm coming our way next week. There is a storm near Florida that has not been named yet, but may become Irma.

Spring Snow

I know the calendar says we are in the spring season, but mother nature isn't finished with winter. We have more snow in the forecast for Friday into Saturday



I will continue to read reports and make sure this doesn't turn into anything more.

March Snow Storm - the latest

This is the headline on weather.com


This is supposed to be a powerful storm but the storm seems to have taken a slight turn to the west which means we now have a rain/snow line. We will have to keep track of where this storm crosses over the state. right now it appears that the snow amounts will be lower in southeastern mass due to rain. These are the latest snow total maps.

















The storm will be starting right around the morning rush hour and the snow will come down heavy for several hours. 2 inches per hour










Everyone be safe and have fun in the snow,

Blizzard Watch

I m posting again because there has been an update. Most of the eastern part of the state is now in a blizzard watch.




These are the storm headlines



The timeline is as follows...



A few TV stations changed their snow total maps so here they are






My next post will be sometime Monday afternoon. Enjoy the snow everyone
















Sunday update

I hope everyone is ready for a large snowfall. Every meteorologist seems to be predicting the same amount for us. They are all on board for 12-18 inches of snow.
The snow will start to fall just before the morning commute and then continue all day into the night.



The low is traveling a little faster than first expected so the snow should stop over night Tuesday not linger into the day Wednesday, but then there is the big clean up for Wednesday. There will be times on Tuesday that the snow is falling at 2 inches per hour.
The other problem will be the wind. You should prepare for some power outages.



There is a chance for blizzard conditions. The National Weather Service defines a blizzard as a storm which contains large amounts of snow OR blowing snow, with winds in excess of 35 mph and visibility of less than 1/4 mile. These conditions have to exist for a minimum of 3 straight hours to be called a blizzard.

Here are all the different snow total maps that I found

 this one from CBS Boston

 this one from channel 5 in Boston











If anything changes I will post an update. 
Enjoy your snow day
