The current 22-degree mark is registering in the single digits on the feels like scale as winds are slowly building. While the 12-hour warning window remains in effect yet the projected top end gusts are now in the 40 – 58 mph range depending on where you look. If ever the prophets were right let it be now because 40 mph is a kid shaking out a blanket at the beach stacked up against 70.
For the full snow globe experience, sporadic yet heavy snow squalls may reach white out conditions between 6 and 10 p.m. this evening if they occur at all.
Temperatures look to bottom out in the teens by morning with wind chills forecasted in the -10 – -20-degree range.
Needless to say, the potential for power outages is predicated exclusively on the extent of what the winds deliver or in Cape Cod speak, hard telling not knowing. As we wait and see I will follow up no later than first thing Friday morning and should a notable number of outages exists, no fee storm follow ups will begin immediately but let’s not put the sleigh in front of the reindeer just yet.
