Get a not-so-desirable gift today? Oh well, that happens. Good news is you can always take it back tomorrow--heads up though, a nasty storm is charging this way & will arrive into Southern New England about this time tomorrow night(~8pm). This storm is loaded with moisture & energy as well as warm air so for those of you along the coastline----raindrops, not snowflakes.
Here are some early thoughts:
*Dry during the daylight hours Wednesday with light snow & coastal light rain starting between 8-10pm.
*Rain snow line charges inland to I-95/MA Pike late tomorrow night. Then that rain/snow line then craws north from the MA Pike toward Rt 2 overnight Wednesday.
*Our Special Map details how much snow falls before the snow changes to freezing rain/rain. It looks like a plowable snow is likely outside Rt 128 & points west by late tomorrow night & Thursday. Some ice accumulation is likely on top of that snow early Thursday morning. Nasty.
*Travel will be poor in for interior southern New England on Thursday morning & early afternoon.
*Coastal areas will pick up between 1-2" of rain during the storm and wind gusts along the coast (especially south shore/cape/islands) will gusts near 50mph from 7am Thu-1pm Thursday.
*Storm will end as some rain/snow showers late Thursday night afternoon & night.
*Dry weather returns for Friday.
Whew, and that's just the first of 2 big storms to affect us----another storm is possible late Saturday & Sunday--more on that later this week.
Enjoy & Merry Christmas!
