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.
What I think is certain at this point is there will be a large swath of 6-to-10, perhaps up to 12 inches of snow somewhere in the vicinity of southern New England.
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 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.
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.
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.
