There is a chance we could be in for an historic, epic, blockbuster nor’easter Monday into Tuesday.
If you are looking for a break from the snow, here’s some encouraging news.
What I think is certain at this point is there will be a large swath of 6-to-10, perhaps up to 12 inches of snow somewhere in the vicinity of southern New England.
By now you have probably heard, there is a fairly good chance that Monday will be another snow day here in southern New England. While it is still a bit early for specifics, I think we can make some early assumptions.
A second wave of precipitation will likely keep roads a bit hazardous piling some ice on top of the fresh snow.
Bursts of light snow will head into the region anytime after 2 p.m. and will continue as light snow. It will mix in with sleet and freezing rain later this evening into the early overnight.
Bright sunshine for Saturday with light NNE winds with highs climbing into the mid-upper 30’s.
Dry high pressure to our north will give us some morning sunshine, but it will be fading behind increasing high -mid level clouds during the day. Highs will climb into the 40’s to near 50 in many areas this afternoon under partly sunny skies. Skies will end up being brighter across the north, with more in the way of clouds streaming through SNE thanks to a batch of showers just off our South coast. Winds will shift to the NE this afternoon then to the SE tonight as clouds will continue to thicken with an approaching warm front.
After midnight towards daybreak I expect the rain to become most steady with the warm front directly over southern New England at the crack of dawn. Morning showers will linger through the late morning along the coast. Showers will be mainly over by afternoon. NNW winds will lock in low clouds and a cool feel especially north and NW of Boston where highs will only be in the 30’s and Lwr 40’s. South of Boston highs will climb into the mid -upper 40’s with the passage of the warm front in the afternoon.
Towards afternoon some high clouds will approach from the west associated with an approaching warm front. Regardless, lots of sun will be found with seasonal high temperatures around 50 degrees.
