A bit of a messy situation set to unfold for the Monday morning commute.
In New England, we are accustomed to measuring each storm by the amount of snow it will drop, but the true measure of a storm should encompass more than just snowfall amounts, it should measure how the upcoming storm is going to IMPACT you.
The United States Coast Guard has to operate in anything that Mother Nature throws at New England.
So how much cold and snow can we expect this winter?
The biggest storm we have seen in months is on our doorstep, just in time to make Thanksgiving travel a bit messy.
A major storm could create a travel mess across the Northeast for the start of the Thanksgiving holiday.
An arctic cold front is charging across the Great Lakes and is destined to pass across the Boston area in the early morning hours of tomorrow. This front will be triggering snow showers and snow squalls across portions of northern New England especially in various mountainous locations this evening and there is a risk that a few spotty flurries and perhaps a widely scattered snow squall will stray into MA in the early morning hours.
A significant coastal storm for southern New England is in the forecast next week.
Get ready, we may just be in for our first real taste of winter weather.
After yesterday’s nice warm and even humid weather with highs of 68-74, reality sets in tomorrow as much colder air rules. It will be flowing out of Canada following the passage of a cold front late tonight or early tomorrow. There is some support for a few showers during that time period as an upper level trough of low pressure streams through.
