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.
Many awoke to fresh coatings of snow this morning as a weak system raced through Southern New England last night. The system had a little more punch in Northern New England and parts of the Maine coastline saw around half a foot of snow.
Most areas will get 8-to-12 inches of snow Wednesday and several towns will be reporting 9, 10 and 11-inch amounts.
It will encompass all of New England, dump significant amounts of heavy, wet snow and impact both the morning and evening commutes.
Here are the details about three storms that could hit the region this week:
Morning low temperatures bottomed out in the single digits…again…but the worst of the cold is behind us now and temps will moderate as we head into the weekend. A frontal system will stall over New England this weekend leading to a chance for rain or snow showers at times making it a bit unsettled but it will also lead to much milder air working in for a change
Too bad it’s raining right now otherwise today would be pretty sweet as temps have shot up into the 40s ahead of an Arctic cold front. The rain showers will shut off this afternoon but gusty wind will transport in another round of Arctic air and we’ll be in the deep freeze for the middle of the work week. Be careful driving or walking tonight…rain from today and a fast temp drop this evening will result in icy spots forming.
The snow will begin as early as 1 p.m. on Tuesday. The first to see flakes would be areas well to the south, along the South Coast, Cape Cod and the Islands.
Our Winter break is coming to an end…an arctic cold front will pass through this evening and temps will take a nose-dive.
Saturday’s high was 59…Sunday’s high was 54…today’s high is expected to be 50 in Boston. That would make this a three day January thaw…kind of like a Winter heatwave! Whatever you want to call it it’s been very nice but it won’t last that much longer as with cold air expected to work back in later this week.
