The storm will slowly wind down this afternoon as the storm departs to our east.
This storm is a long duration event lasting 36-to-48 hours total.
This winter storm will mean several things for Southern New England…Heavy, wet snow, heavy rain/mix, damaging winds, coastal flooding and beach erosion.
This storm will include a plethora of weather conditions – heavy, wet snow inland, heavy rain for the Cape and Islands, damaging winds, and coastal issues.
The coast will be dealing with a rain-mix throughout this storm with heavy, wet snow falling away from the coast.
There will be the potential of 6-to-12+ inches of snow, but the question remains ‘where’ that will fall.
We are bracing for yet another winter storm including heavy snow, rain, damaging winds, and coastal concerns.
Clouds will continue to blanket the sky for the next couple of days as an upper level low meanders near Nova Scotia. There will be ‘tentacles’ of moisture spiraling around this low pressure center which will induce scattered diurnal snowflakes and/or raindrops. As the sun sets, the sky will become less cloudy.
A mainly cloudy day is in store for this last day of February 2013. It has definitely turned out to be a snowy month. 34″ of snow fell this month in Boston (+23.5″), and Worcester received 44.4″ (+29.3″). Worcester could see a few more flakes just before February makes its official exit too.
The cold air will win out for higher elevations of Central Massachusetts as well as Southern NH where some areas will receive 3-6+” of heavy, wet snow. Ski country is going to be all smiles from today’s storm!
