Here we go again! Spring is just a little more than two weeks away and we are bracing for yet another winter storm including heavy snow, rain, damaging winds, and coastal concerns.

Today will be partly sunny with more sunny breaks early in the day. There is a slight chance of a raindrop or two this afternoon. Highs will reach the middle 40′s.

Wednesday will be quiet to start with rain-snow showers developing throughout the day. This is just the beginning of a massive ocean storm that intensifies once making its trek offshore on Wednesday.

The storm’s effects will be felt from Wednesday night through the day on Friday.

What is certain?

We are concerned about coastal flooding and beach erosion. It will be covering a long period of time which will include 7 a.m. and p.m. Thursday high tides as well as 8 a.m. and p.m. Friday high tides.

Where, oh where, will the rain/snow line set-up and how far north will the precipitation shield extend?

Those are two huge questions and will make a huge difference in terms of the impact on our region.

So, we do know that the snow will be heavy and wet.

There will be the potential of 6-to-12+ inches of snow, but the question remains ‘where’ that will fall.

I do believe that rain-mix will dictate the actual coastline, but inland areas (outside of Route 128) could easily see this heavy, wet snow.

We will watch this track closely to determine where the heaviest slug of precipitation will be. Tough forecast ahead so please stay tuned.

Saturday will be the pick day of the weekend since sunshine will make a comeback and highs will be flirting with 50!
