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.
This has been some kind of week. Since last Thursday, Boston has had measurable snowfall 5 out of 6 days, accumulating to about 10 inches.
This should be our last significant snow accumulation for a while.
Another snow storm is coming, and while this one isn’t very large, it will pack a quick little punch on Tuesday afternoon, hitting southern New England square in the face.
We now expect 12-15” of snow in extreme southeastern Massachusetts and for most the upper Cape.
The storm track is edging a bit closer to our coast, and we are in for our 2nd major winter storm in just 3 days. Here are the inch-by-inch details:
This will be a fast moving, intense burst of snow focused during Saturday night along our coastline, essentially, a 6-to-8 hour window where we will accumulate snow very rapidly.
Here is the latest timeline for the storm, inch-by-inch, drop-by-drop.
So it looks like a 3-commute nightmare – beginning during the Thursday morning commute, peaking during the Thursday evening commute and ending just before the Friday morning drive.
If the snow does arrive mid-morning on Thursday as we expect, this could be a situation where schools are forced to let out early in the middle of some very heavy snow.
