Snowy Saturday

January 6, 2017

 

 

 

A developing area of low pressure will move offshore Saturday and although the center will be pretty far to our south & east, latest indications are that the system will throw some accumulating snow our way.  Snow will develop from south to north after 7 AM Saturday, starting first on Long Island, then moving into southeastern CT, and probably not reaching northwestern MA until afternoon.  The wind will pick up - especially during the afternoon into Saturday night.  The snow will end from northwest to southeast during Saturday night, with my expected accumulations shown above. There will be a "fluff factor" involved with this snow (like this morning), so snow-to-liquid ratios will be higher than the typical 10-1. The highest snow amounts from this system will be in parts of southeastern MA, including Cape Cod where some places may receive more than a foot.  If the system jogs slightly off its current forecast track, snow amounts could be affected significantly in either direction.  Temperatures will drop into the teens in many areas during Saturday night, with wind chills near or below 0 in some cases. Highs over the weekend will be mostly in the 20's (some teens in the Berkshires).  Many spots could see single digit lows on the thermometer overnight Sunday into early Monday Morning.
