Stormy Days Ahead

Posted: Updated:
I'll just get this out of the way......a snow blitz is on tap for New England over the next 6-8 days. 3 storms will take aim on New England. The first is today, the next is Wednesday and the last will be next weekend. Let's take these one at a time and remember---"this snow will melt".

The first of the bunch is upon us and it will focus most of its attention south of the MA Pike during the day. The storm is with us primarily from 9am until 4pm as the it slides south of New England during the day. It will also encounter some leftover mild air from yesterday so that will  hold down the snowfall potential just a bit with many cities & towns along the MA Pike/north of the Pike getting just a coating to an inch. Farther south, toward Rt. 44 and south of there toward the Cape is where you will find most of the accumulating snow (2-5"). This snow will be a sloppy, wet snow creating some locally poor travel conditions later today across SE massachusetts. Temps hold in the low 30s for much of the day.

Tuesday we catch our breath, do our grocery shopping and enjoy some February sunshine with daytime temps in the 30s.

Wednesday is the next storm and it will be a bigger storm with more energy, more moisture and likely more headaches as it will lead to major travel disruption throughout the day across New England. This storm will be able to change the snow over to sleet/rain on the South Shore but that's about it.  I think north of the MA Pike it's an all snow event where 6-10" will likely pile up by afternoon. Lighter amounts (yet a heavier, wetter snow) are likely from Duxbury to Attleboro out onto the Cape (3-6").

Sunshine returns for Thursday & Friday.

Had enough?....I'll hold off on storm #3 details until later this week.
