Saturday Dec 13 - Cooler

Yesterday was another warm,wet and windy day here.Temps reached into the low double digits but the wind and rain made for a 'not so nice' day.There were periods of torrential rain lasting into the evening.Total rainfall was reported at near 25mm making a two day total of about 70mm or almost 3 inches.Wind gusts were clocked at 90 km/h.We also had a period of thunder and lightning in the early evening.
We were lucky enough to be on the warm side of the front as parts of Massachusetts and New Hampshire were coated in ice,bringing down trees and knocking out the power to approx 500,000 customers.They may be 'powerless' for many days and the news reports resembled a war zone.To compound the problem,the weekend weather there is forecast to be below freezing,like here,with warmer weather returning next week.
