Snow is Trending
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Just another batch of some nuisance snow out there for you this morning as another tiny storm scooted through here overnight. Most towns picked up a coating-1" but sunshine will go to work this morning (after a 2 hour delay--like a school!!) melting that coating as most towns reach the upper 30s by afternoon. Mainly clear skies for tonight and into tomorrow morning. As we step through tomorrow clouds begin to arrive and those clouds are the leading edge of another storm....a bigger storm for Friday-Saturday.
Here's what we know about this Friday-Saturday storm:
*A drawn out storm---beginning as light snow by 8am Friday then becoming steadier & heavier by Friday afternoon and into Friday night. Snow won't taper off until 9-11am Saturday!
*A plowable snow is likely Friday-Saturday (Our *Special* map in the maps section details how much).
*Poor Travel is expected (ground and air) is expected across southern New England Friday afternoon through early Saturday morning.
*Minor-Moderate Coastal Flooding is likely Friday PM / Saturday AM
Here's What We're Still Working on with this storm:
*Storm Track---It's actually two storms that will join forces to become one storm----if they join forces too late (well southeast of New England) then it will be a storm with much less snowfall.
*Until we can pinpoint the storm track then the amount of snow is not locked in and that dreaded rain/snow line is also not known.
New information will be later this morning--this will further our confidence in this forecast--stay tuned!
