The batches of snow showers are very spotty and light so this will keep accumulations down. As the low tracks through tonight is should keep the heaviest snow across SVT, SNH and N. MA. Though snow will start off light, heavier bands may try to develop overnight into the early morning Saturday
This storm will truly be a daytime event, on average from 6-to-8 a.m to 4-to-6 p.m. Saturday.
Yes, SNOW has become a rare commodity this winter season. It’s that rare commodity that is heading our way on Saturday.
Until then, the sun will be shining and working hard to warm our high temperatures up to 50F! It’s going to be a gorgeous February day!
Amounts are very tough to forecast this early, but it is likely that southeastern Massachusetts would be in line for the greatest snow accumulation, which could be in the 3-to-6 inch range.
A gorgeous Saturday morning will see increasing cloudiness by afternoon. Temps have started in the 30′s and will be climbing into the mid-upper 40′s by this afternoon with a mild west wind. Weak high pressure over us this morning will give way to an approaching front for the evening hours.
The biggest snowfall of the season for many in eastern Massachusetts is on the way Saturday.
Ready or not it is going to look a lot more like winter around here as we are now tracking two accumulating snow events in the next 3 days!
There are plenty of left over clouds this morning in SNH, western and central MA. Some of these clouds will push to the coast around lunch time along with the cold front. Winds will shift and pick up from the WNW this afternoon and temperatures will continue to free fall right through the evening with colder air draining in from Canada. Increasing sunshine later this afternoon with temps falling into the 30′s.
There’s a plan out there to keep T service running longer on Friday and Saturday nights, but the MBTA doesn’t think it will happen.
A major nor’easter is about to pound southern New England with heavy rain, snow and wind.
