Weather Update: Christmas, Rain or Snow?

It's been a while since we've posted about the weather mostly due to the fact that we've been having quite boring weather lately. Once the snow starts coming in you'll see us posting just about every day...hopefully.

Well to start us off there will be NO snow for Christmas Eve, Day, or Night. Well, actually we are seeing precipitaion for Christmas night, but no snow. It'll stay around 35-38 F degrees for the night time, and we will sure be able to see tons of rain showers through out the whole night into Tuesday morning. Please wish for a Christmas miracle!

Right now I'm looking at possible snow flurries/showers (depends) for Wednesday evening/night time. I'm hoping we see lots of the white stuff!

Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the NBWeather team,

Weather Update: Rain Showers....Snow Showers...?

Well, not much has been going on with the weather that's why we haven't been updating this website or our MySpace lately.

We have both good news and bad news to share...

That bad news is New Bedford and surrounding areas will be getting a lot of rain and possibly seeing some thunder showers on Friday night. Thursday morning we're looking at getting some patchy fog before 9:00 a.m. then slowly becoming partly cloudy with some sun pulling through the cloud cover by the afternoon, in the early evening probably around 4:00 p.m. we're likely to start seeing some precipitaion starting as a drizzle early on and then becoming a full blown rain shower by midnight. Winds will also begin to start picking up possible gusts of 15mph. The rain will continue into Friday morning taking breaks early on and then by 10:00 a.m. picking back up to a normal rain shower, it will do this all through Friday night and we'll probably see a thunder storm before 9:00 p.m. Wind gusts during the day could range between 18-22mph and at night we could be seeing gusts up to 45mph, so be carefull driving on the roads. The temperatures will stay mild around 50 degrees.
Saturday and Sunday is looking clear right now.

The good news is New Bedford and surrounding areas will likely see a snow shower on Sunday night, right now there's only a 40-50% chance of this happening but it's looking like we're in for a good snow. If it does snow it should last until Monday morning and possibly carry on into the mid-day, if the temperatures raise on Monday then the snow will change to rain if it stays at a good temperature it's likely that we will see snow for a good part of Monday. If we're lucky, the snow is possible to continue into early Monday evening or start back up in time for the evening lows, but if it's rain then it might change back to snow and finish off before midnight on Monday.

We're still watching this storm system closely, if it changes or if the percentages drop then I will edit this weather bulletin with the correct information. Remember, the snow is still being watched but since yesterday the percentages of it happening has raised, so hopefully we will see New Bedford's first snow of the season on this Sunday the 3rd of December.

Thank you!

Weather Update: Thanksgiving Rain/Snow?

This Thanksgiving New Bedford will likely be covered with rain due to a large storm system that's been traveling up the coastline, currently it is somewhere close by to North Carolina. It's been moving quicker then expected since the rain was supposed to be held off until Friday afternoon. Instead the rain should start sometime in the afternoon on Wednesday and travel itself through until Friday morning.

Are there any chances of New Bedford and the surrounding towns to see snow?

Sorry guys, but there are no chances of snow for New Bedford and its surrounding towns. New Bedford will just see lots of rain traveling into Thursday and it should start wrapping up by Friday. With this rain we will also be seeing and feeling a lot of wind and strong wind gusts as high as 40mph by Thanksgiving night. As I said before the rain will last until Friday and we'll be seeing plenty of wind, the worst part of the storm wil hit us on Thanksgiving day and get worse into the night time, it should all clear away by Friday, thankfully, so you guys can all go out and hit the big sales. If we do see any precipitation on Friday it should be a very brief drizzle in the morning hours, nothing huge.

We should expect our first snow very soon...possibly next week or weekend.
