Currently in Boston — February 22nd, 2023

The weather, currently.

Dry Wednesday unsettled Thursday

Sunshine is back for Wednesday with highs in the 40s. The clouds will move in for the afternoon, and it will be dry for both commutes. Mild air at high levels of the atmosphere means most precipitation that falls later Wednesday evening into Thursday will be in the form of a cold rain.  There could be some sleet or freezing rain at the onset of the precipitation. This will be especially true north of Boston. Thursday night turns a bit colder. Be careful while traveling, especially  north of Mass Pike near the Route 2 area. Sunshine returns Friday.

What you need to know, currently.

Heavy snow and blizzards are likely in parts of the Northern Plains and upper Midwest from Tuesday through at least midday Thursday, as Winter Storm Olive makes its way across the region.

This could be the Twin Cities’ heaviest snowstorm in over 12 years. Snowfall totals will likely be more than one foot in most areas of eastern South Dakota, southern Minnesota, and northern Wisconsin.

Residents  should  also expect blowing and drifting snow due to the cold air and strong winds, worsening road conditions. Travel will be almost impossible in some areas, and many roads might not be cleared until Friday.
