Bitter Blast Tuesday, Back To The 30s Wednesday – Boston News, Weather, Sports

A wind advice is in effect for parts of Worcester County and northwestern Middlesex County from 6 p.m. 01.00 to 16.00 on Tuesday. Wind chills can be as low as -15º to -20º. When it feels like the temperature is close to or below -15º, you can get frostbite on exposed skin (fingers, toes, noses and ears) in as little as 30 minutes.

In the rest of the area it will still be cold with wind cold between -5º to -10º. Things improve at least a little bit in the afternoon as the wind slows down.

It looks like high temperatures for Tuesday will hit just around midnight tonight in the upper teens of Boston. The afternoon temperature will be close to 10º, but the highest for the day will probably be around 17º. That means we will not break the record for cold high temperatures of 12º back in 1981.

This Arctic air will not exist for too long. Wednesday starts with single digits and teens, and then a warm front lets our heights jump into the mid-30s. It will be windy as the front moves through the area in the afternoon. Thursday has less wind and it is mild compared to the cold we will feel tomorrow.

We see a storm offshore Friday that could bring light snow into the area. Right now, most of the system seems to be missing us. Heights do not reach adolescence until Saturday, and the sky is partly sunny.
