Light Snow Tomorrow

A combination of short wave energy sliding just south of New England (represented by orange & red shading in image above and weak low pressure at the surface will result in some light snow for us Tuesday into Tuesday night. Based on current timing, the snow will spread from west to east across the region between 11 AM-3 PM. Might take until 4 PM to get far, northeastern MA into it. Should taper off during Tuesday night, except eastern MA where it may linger into early Wednesday. Accumulations likely to be on the order of 1.0"-3.0", possibly 4.0" in some of the the northern hills. Should have some impact on the Tuesday evening commute. (The Tuesday morning commute should be fine).

Nor'Easter Update

Tough forecast on precipitation types and amounts for the higher elevations of northwest CT, western MA, southeastern NY, and far northern NJ. A messy, accumulating mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and some rain is likely in these areas. Probably enough mixing to prevent huge snow accumulations, but if things turn out to be slightly colder between 3,000-7,000 feet above the ground, or the European model verifies, then we are looking at a 6"-12" snow & ice event for some of these areas, but will keep it a messy mix for now. Even with the mixing, there is likely to be a measurable accumulation up to several inches of snow & ice in these places. The further south & east you go, the more t

A Quiet, Seasonably Cold Weekend...

A high pressure center will continue to move over the region tonight and Saturday, resulting in decreasing wind. There will be some mid-level cloudiness around at times, though. Late Saturday into Saturday night a pathetic little low pressure system will pass offshore, well to our south. Most of our region will remain dry, although it is possible that central NJ and parts of Long Island could get brushed with a dusting/coating of snow. Sunday will be sunny & seasonably cold. Lows tonight will be in the teens-low 20's. Highs mostly in the low-mid 30's Saturday, except some upper 20's across higher elevations. Lows Saturday night/early Sunday will be a few degrees higher than tonight -

Milder Weather Is Near

2 PM Temperatures this afternoon are still in the teens-low 20's (map above). Still just 14 degrees at Worcester and Pittsfield, MA! Temperatures will finally begin to moderate tomorrow, though. Tonight will be cold, with lows in the single numbers & teens, though not quite as cold as last night. As the milder air begins to work in tomorrow, some snow and/or rain showers will come through during the afternoon/early evening. It doesn't look like a lot of precipitation, however there could be a coating of snow from this in the northern hills of CT, higher elevations of southeastern NY, and parts of MA. High temperatures Tuesday will reach 40+ late in the day near and southeast of the red

Snowy Saturday

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

Snow Update

Yesterday's snowfall forecast for Friday still looks pretty good. Moved the 1"-3" line a tad further to the northwest, but the forecast remains very similar to yesterday's. Occasional flurries and light snow will start in most areas after midnight, but could be a bit before that in parts of NJ, Long Island, and coastal CT. Snow will end from west to east across the region during Friday morning. Might linger until early afternoon on Cape Cod. Will have to keep an eye on an ocean storm this weekend. Looks like it will pass close enough to bring measurable snow back into portions of our region - especially parts of Long Island, eastern CT, RI, and southeastern MA.

We're Getting Brushed Friday

Light snow or snow showers will begin during Thursday night and end by early Friday afternoon, except mid-afternoon across southeastern New England and eastern Long Island. The center of the system will track pretty far offshore, so places closest to the ocean will get the most snow. Most places should end up with a coating to an inch, with 1"-3" more likely across Long Island and southeastern MA. (Click image to enlarge).
