Mother Nature is about to serve up a classic taste of March in New England this week, complete with all the fixings – rain, snow, warmth and cold, all in the next few days.
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.
It is much too early to project where this rain-snow line will setup and who will stay all snow, but, those areas that do not mix with rain could easily see 6-to-12 inches of snow or more.
Nor’easter 2014 has arrived. It may take a while to get revved up but once we get there it is going to pack a significant punch.
This will be a long duration event with nearly 36 hours of light to moderate snowfall.
Our first true Nor’easter of the season appears to be on its way for later this week, but some good news as it appears we may skip a worst-case scenario.
I would urge you pay a little extra attention to the forecast over the next 48 hours and be prepared for a rude welcome back to work and school from Mother Nature.
A fresh layer of several inches of snow will coat the ground and many roads by Friday morning’s commute, leading to some tricky and treacherous travel. Snow will continue all morning and finally begin to taper off during Friday afternoon.
