Grey, Slushy Day in Quincy MA

Posted by Hans Dietrich on March 4, 2015 at 5:33pm 0 Comments

Current Conditions (5 pm):- temperature - 42°F, barometric - 29.70"⬆︎, humidity - 50%, dew point - 24°F.

How amazing today is, the whole day above freezing. Woke up to a temperature of 38°F and found the ground covered in slush. Well, the flat, previously shoveled part anyway. The rest is still frozen solid. An hour of pushing and heaving the watery mix and the driveway was clear. With the temperature going up to 43°F the melting really got underway. The majority of the storm stayed to the south of us with our area receiving about 2 inches of snow, then sleet and rain. Tonight, we expect to receive some rain before…

Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Posted by Kevin Shaw on March 4, 2015 at 1:25am 0 Comments

Tuesday was a mostly cloudy day and cold in the AM, then a slow moderation in the PM with light freezing rain/drizzle in the late afternoon/early evening that made walking and driving rather difficult in some spots, like out in the front of my house. Late evening we had a lull in the precipitation action as temps continued to climb. By morning we may be up around 40 and in the 40s during the day on Wednesday with rain showers from time to time. Wednesday night a strong cold front is going to come through, and change the precipitation over to snow. Right now for Thursday snow is in the forecast, high temps just below the freezing mark, and widely varying predictions for snowfall amounts. We are under a winter storm watch at the current time. I would say 5-10 inches of snow would be a good bet from late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning through most of the day on Thursday. Thereafter we…
