A late-winter storm that buried parts of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic swept into New England on Thursday, bringing snow, rain, strong winds, big waves and fears of coastal flooding.
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.
Not only do we have more snow on the way in less than 48 hours, but temperatures following our next snow event are going to be near or below normal for the foreseeable future.
What looked like such a slam dunk forecast a few days ago has become an absolute head scratcher. Honestly, this storm could end up being a bust.
It’s a definite that today will be a pleasant winter day with sunshine, lighter winds, and highs flirting with 40F.
