This storm will stay well offshore and its core of wind, rain and snow will never come very close to New England, so what’s the problem you ask? Well it seems this winter that no matter how hard we try, we just cannot avoid a snowstorm.
The good news: we can just about put this snowstorm in the books…
There will be a widespread 2-to-4 inches (at least) on the ground by Tuesday morning’s commute, just about everywhere. I expect lots of delays, cancellations and an extremely challenging morning drive.
David Fronzuto, emergency management director for the island says this winter’s storms have led to the destruction of four or five homes.
Snow will move in between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Winter Storm Warnings and Watches have been issued for tonight through Tuesday.
Today will be sunny and cold as highs only hang near the middle 30s. Clouds will be taking over this evening ahead of this big winter storm…Winter’s last hurrah, literally! Tomorrow, the last full day of Winter, will look like a winter wonderland for most of us.
I wish it were a just a cruel joke…just as much of the landscape in Southern New England is finally turning from white to green and the first signs of spring are popping up and sprouting through the ground, yet another potent winter storm is on its way.
Why did we get so much more snow than expected Friday?
Please take this storm threat seriously, especially if you are a coastal resident…you should begin to make preparations immediately
This storm is going to continue to strengthen over the coming days and become an absolute monster once it hits the Atlantic Ocean off of Virginia early Wednesday morning.
