This winter just won’t quit; snow expected Thursday in Plymouth County, Cape, and islands
It’s the winter that just won’t quit.
Though today is the first day of spring, it will feel more like the middle of winter, with highs in the upper 30s and wind chills in the 20s thanks to gusty winds, the National Weather Service said.
Thursday won’t be any better, and Plymouth County, Cape Cod, and the islands will see “plowable snow” beginning at 6 a.m. and continuing through the morning, meteorologist Bill Simpson said. Boston will likely receive between a dusting to an inch of the fluffy stuff.
Temperatures will get even chillier Thursday, with highs only expected to reach the mid-30s.
Weather patterns indicate that cold and potentially stormy weather will last for at least another week, Simpson said.
This weekend’s high temperatures will be in the upper 30s and low 40s, with overnight lows between 15 and 25 degrees, forecasters said.
Keep those eyes on the horizon for more storms, too.
“We continue to be in an active snow pattern for at least another week,” Simpson said.Lauren Dezenski can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
