Our storm continues to sit well offshore to our SE spinning in band after band of snow…some of it heavy at times. Now that darkness has set in, temps have dropped so that snow accumulation is happening much faster now and some areas south of Boston are already over 6″. This will go on through the night making tomorrow morning’s commute the worst yet with snow-covered roads and snow falling. By mid-morning, like today, energy from the sun will sneak through the clouds warming the air enough to improve road conditions even though it will still be snowing right up through early afternoon. The storm will start pulling away in the afternoon and snow showers may flip to rain showers before completely ending late in the day. Another 4-8″ can be expected through the night for most with just a few slushy inches for The Cape.
The wind will remain fierce especially along the coastline and with heavy wet snow encasing tree limbs and powerlines, some additional power outages are likely.
The coast is still our biggest concern with the highest of the tides still to come tomorrow morning…once again road closures and rerouting will be necessary. The beach erosion is ongoing with huge wave action…some 20-25 footers just offshore!
The storm departs late tomorrow and the weekend looks great with sunshine and mild temps in the 40s to near 50 for some…let the melt begin!
