Did yesterday's big snowstorm out in Worcester county have you feeling a little empty? Want to get into the action? Maybe get your fair share of white?
Fine, we'll oblige.
The next storm up isn't like yesterdays. Not a nor'easter, not a 2-3" rain maker either. Instead, we have light snow event that becomes a little fiesty tomorrow evening across Southeast Mass. At play: cold air (just enough for snow, but not enough for a huge fluffy-factor), a storm track just south of Long Island, the Vineyard and Nantucket and a coastal front.
A coastal what?
A coastal front. A boundary between near 40 on Cape Cod and the 20s in Worcester. That is an added feature that will juice up the storm and essentially make it snow harder between 8pm and midnight.
So, without further bandwith...here's the timeline:
Startup 11am-1pm. As snow for most, but rain Taunton, New Bedford, Middleboro, Cape Cod.
Rain turns to snow in above mentioned areas, but stays as rain east of Rt. 3 (Plymouth to Scituate-like).
Snow becomes heavy south of Brockton, Foxboro and all way to Canal by 8pm to midnight. Light snow elsewhere.
Change to snow late on Cape Cod, then exits after midnight.
Cold to follow for Pats game. Keep it real....
