Just a Grazing…
With highs reaching the middle 40s today, our slow and steady snowmelt continued and since the weekend blizzard a nice sized bite has been taken out of the snowpack. So are we going to see any more and replenish what is lost? The answer: Not so much.
Another developing juicy storm is racing out of the Deep SOuth with Gulf of Mexico moisture and headed toward the Northeast. The track of this one due to the flatter jetstream will travel more east than northeast and therefore most of the moisture and snow will stay south of us. More snow will fall through the Mid-Atlantic than here in New England. With that said, a few inches are likely along the South Coast with coatings expected all the way up to about Boston late Wednesday night and exiting early Thursday morning.
Our next chance for any snow is over the weekend. A strong coldfront will sweep through Friday night pushing out the mild air and ushering in mid-Winter cold again. The front will likely have snow showers along it but a wave of low pressure will try to develop along it early Saturday morning and may focus a period of snow over us…that’s the first chance. The second chance will be with a digging upper level trough spinning up a large ocean storm along the passing coldfront…this storm will be bigger and has more potential but right now it appears it won’t get it’s act together until it is too late. This obviously bears watching!
