Best wishes for the New Year from newsandviewsjb! 001

Button up your overcoat – a blast of frigid air and a snowstorm will kick off 2014 here in the Northeast. According to ACCUWEATHER a bubble of cold air moving down from Canada and making its way from the Midwest to parts of New England later in the week is expected to produce temperatures that could go below zero – the coldest temperatures since 2009.

As well, a snowstorm is “brewing” that could drop between six to ten inches of snow in areas from Thursday into Friday. ACCUWEATHER reports the worst of it will be Thursday night when the snow will be heavy compounded by the cold and winds.

On a separate note, for anyone who may be interested Yankee Magazine has a Facebook page of breathtaking New England winter photography – as the region braces for what’s ahead it’s a nice reminder of the beauty of the season.
