Mother Nature delivering on this Christmas morning as light snow falls on most of us. We won't get a lot, but a dusting to an inch creates a touch of white on the ground that adds a bit to the holiday spirit. You won't even have to shovel off the steps... a broom will do the job just fine. The light snow tapers to scattered flurries by Noon.
A much bigger storm moves in tomorrow night and continues through Thursday morning. Any snow, quickly changes to rain inside route 128 as an east wind floods us with milder air. From 128 to 495, a couple inches could fall before the rain takes over, with the best chance of several inches... along and northwest of 495 from Lawrence to Marlboro. Well inland, north of Worcester to Townsend to Manchester, NH, a lot of snow falls before a mix with sleet and rain on Thursday morning. There, 6-12" could fall, with a lot of ski country getting about a foot of snow with this one. Along the coast, not only do we deal with the rain, but also, strong winds. High wind watch is in place for SE Mass for winds gusting to 60mph!
For you snow lovers in Boston... sorry, mostly rain on this storm, but perhaps a colder track of another storm over the weekend can get the job done!
Merry Christmas everyone!
