BUST! Story Becomes Bitter Cold

No way to sugarcoat it- this will go down as a bust for everyone outside of 495 and North of the Pike.  Here was my map from Monday Night
Snowfall Map from 1/20/14
Here is what we have so far 
Skywarn Snowfall Totals 507 am (NWS Boston)
I should have trimmed the 6-10 and brought the 3-6 into Southern Worcester County.  I also should not have included Cape Ann.  I can't call the Cape a bust yet, but I think it will be hard for it reach 10" given the current radar presentation 
NWS Northeast Regional Radar
We'll see, but overall I am not happy with the forecast.  I have a feeling I'll have plenty of chances to try again before the winter is over.  Now the big weather headline is bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills for awhile.

Current Conditions/Short Term Forecast
Here are the temperatures as of 4 am

Bundle up...wind chills across Southern New England are running -10 to -15.  Here is one models wind chill temps as of 7 am

High temperatures today will range from 15-20 for most.  On the Cape temps will be in the 20's

Even though this map shows a Winter Storm Warning still for Eastern MA/RI this will be dropped soon.  A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued in its place through 10 AM
NWS Boston Advisories 
Tonight a good portion of Southern New England goes below 0

Temperatures stay in the teens tomorrow.  This is nasty stuff.  I'll update later today as there is the potential for light snow on Saturday, but maybe enough to get crews on the roads. 

Bundle Up
