Hi all! Sorry for the lack of posting today. For one, I wasn’t home much until 9pm. Also, the computer and the sites I go to were being very stubborn! Maybe they’re tired of the winter too. Well, I’m not, I know that much, but did you expect to hear any different from me? 😉
After all of the trouble and finally being able to look at everything I want, I’m essentially staying with the overall ideas posted yesterday. The only adjustments are to up the Tuesday snowfall totals very slightly to 4-8 inches across most of MA & southern NH. The Wednesday storm remains very tricky, because of a mix line getting involved. I still feel that freezing rain will be confined to a narrow strip somewhere south of the Mass Pike, with sleet more likely to be mixed in along and up to 10 miles either side of the Mass Pike, with still mainly snow along and north of Route 2. I still expect a widespread 6-12 inches from the Wednesday storm in terms of snow and sleet accumulation (the majority of it being from snow). There is a bit of a wild card in the southern portion of this 6-12 inch belt depending on the amount of sleet. Amounts of course will drop off more as you head south and southeastward toward Cape Cod, with only a few inches of snow out on the Cape.
The 2-day storm totals of 8 to 20 inches still seem likely when you start in the region south of the Mass Pike and progress northward to southern NH, with the Boston area falling to the 10-18 inch area for the 2-days. A few spotty amounts of over 20 inches are also still possible mainly from the hills of Worcester County to southwestern NH.
A quick look ahead… Lingering snow showers are possible Thursday but I don’t expect any additional accumulation. Dry/cold weather is likely Friday, and yet another snow threat seems probable on Saturday. We’ll take a closer look at this tomorrow though updates through early Wednesday will focus mainly on the double punch storm we are about to deal with.
Thanks for your patience waiting for my update tonight!!!
