It's going to snow later today and for some of you, a lot. Another winter storm is taking aim on New England. This won't be quite as powerful as its older brother from a few days ago (in terms of wind & coastal flooding) but it will require you to gas up the snow blowers & ready the shovels & plows....but not in the same spots.
Here's what we're thinking on the storm:
*First snowflakes arrive between 12-2pm.
*Storm is a 12 hour storm---from 1pm today until 1am Sunday.
*Height of the storm will be from ~5pm until 11pm tonight.
*Metro Boston and cities/towns along south shore will actually see plain rain for a few hours early this evening before changing to a heavy snow.
*Just about entire area receives a plowable snow (2" or more), our *Special Map* in our *Maps section* details snowfall potential with this storm.
*Wind will gust along south shore/cape islands between 20-30mph this evening & overnight tonight.
*Cape & Islands won't see accumulating snow until after midnight tonight.
*No concern of coastal flooding with this storm
*Travel will be poor later today & especially this evening/ overnight.
What am I missing??---hit me on twitter if you need gaps filled in.
As for the remainder of the weekend, our storm will explode as it departs the region early tomorrow morning and that means a windy & cold Sunday with northwest winds 15-30mph for the entire region. That will keep wind chills in the 10s & 20s for the entire day (including Gillette stadium). The sun will shine though.
Looking into day 366 for 2012, it will offer a bunch of clouds & even a few flurries for First Night festivities. Afternoon highs on Monday reach the low 30s & evening temps in the upper 20s.
Enjoy that snow today.
