Before we talk about the snow, there’s a lot of active weather on Wednesday to discuss, so let’s dive right in.
A new nor’easter is on the way for the middle of this week.
A widespread 2-to-5 inches from Cape Ann to Cape Cod is expected, with a coating to 2 inches north and west of Boston and a very sharp cutoff on the western fringe of this system.
The destruction along our shoreline was unimaginable and the memories still remain fresh in the minds of residents that went through it.
We’re monitoring a significant coastal storm which will likely bring accumulating snow to southern New England Thursday.
With no big storms in the forecast it really is all about the arctic air.
A record cold arctic air mass has moved into the Northeast and it’s going to be sticking around through the start of the New Year.
Strong arctic high pressure will dominate our weather pattern for the next several days, bringing record cold high temperatures and dangerously cold wind chill values.
Here are the details of what will essentially be a moderate Nor’easter type event.
The general time frame we’ll be watching Wednesday is between 3 and 11 p.m. from west to east.
