Still Looking For Some Snow
Posted by Chris Lambert
It's dry today, through Christmas Eve until about midnight, but after that... all dry bets are off as light snow starts flying. That snow drops into Christmas morning, tapers off by mid morning, with some sun breaking through the clouds by the afternoon. Overall, I'm not expecting a big storm, but one that could blanket many of us in southern New England with 1-3".... I think a lot of us are more toward that 1 than that 3. Although a few bands of snow will allow for those localized 3" amounts inland. Through SE Mass/Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands, it may be rain, pending the track of the low, and that lowers the white Christmas chance there. For the latest thinking on who has the best chance, click on the "special map" under the weather section of the website.
We have bigger fish to fry Wednesday night and Thursday as a storm rides up the eastern United States (nor'easter in the works?). This one has the potential for at least a half a foot to a foot of snow where it's all snow, lots of wind and lots of rain so it bears watching. Right now, it does look more wet than white for many of us, but north and west of 495, we could see significant snow/sleet if the track turns out to be a bit more favorable for colder air holding in place. One thing that I'm confident is, is ski country doing well with this one as many resorts see the white gold over this Christmas vacation week.
Plenty of time to track that... Enjoy hanging out with the family the next few days.
