Arctic front to bring temperature plunge

Yesterday, we at Cambridge witnessed our first lasting snow of the winter, more than one month later than the time of our first lasting snow last year. Temperatures over the last few days frequently oscillated above and below freezing, as is typical in Bostonian December.

This will soon change, however, as an Arctic Front is forecast to move through Boston tomorrow night, lowering highs to below freezing and pushing lows into the teens. The later part of the week is expected to be dry and frigid.

As hurricane season ended, a time for a new, different set of named storms came. Over the past few days, Winter Storm Dion has brought to much of the Eastern U.S. significant amounts of snow and many airport delays. Continued snowfall in the Mid-Atlantic is still expected today.
