More Cold, More Flakes to Fly

Posted: Updated:
A coating to a couple inches of snow by predawn Monday.  The light blue indicates where ocean enhancement allows for isolated higher totals.  Not all areas at the coast see those higher totals, it's just localized within that band. A coating to a couple inches of snow by predawn Monday.

Look on the bright side... the length of daylight continues to increase, the Red Sox start spring training soon, and the ski resorts have great weather for skiing.  Ok, now with all that said, we don't have much of any sort of thaw in the forecast and at times, we have more storminess to track. At least the core of the Arctic air stays away.

We'll start this Sunday morning off with snow showers across Cape Ann and parts of the South Shore/Cape, while inland locations see partial sunshine.  The coastal snow showers are thanks to ocean effect snow, which will be in and out through the day thanks to a north to northeast flow.  For the rest of us, we'll have to wait a bit for a better chance of flakes.

That better chance for more widespread snow arrives early this evening as we track a wave of low pressure riding in from the west, spreading light snow in here after sunset, and periodically overnight.  A coating to a couple inches of snow is likely by predawn Monday, meaning you may need a few extra minutes Monday morning to dust of the car before heading to work. If there are locally higher amounts (3"+) it would be across Cape Ann and perhaps a few towns along the South Shore, thanks to that local enhancement off the ocean. Along with needing to dust off the car, leftover slick spots are also possible for the Monday AM commute but the falling snow is done. 

The week remains relatively cold and quiet from Monday afternoon, through Wednesday, before the next potential storm rolls in Thursday.  This storm will have more moisture with it, as it moves up the East Coast and spreads some snow, increasing northeast breezes and perhaps a bit of coastal rain in here.  Track, intensity, snow amounts and any rain/snow lines are too early to discuss as there are plenty of details to be ironed out the couple of days, but the potential for this storm has not gone away. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and enjoy the Olympics!
