Snow! Some winters it's just about daily (2 winters ago) while others it never happens (last year). This year it's been location location location. Coastal cities & towns have seen very little while out in the Worcester area, snowfall has been just about normal. Just about all of us see some snow today---even at the coast.
Here's the thinking on our storm:
*Timing---steadiest snow falls from 5am until 12pm today. This is when the accumulating snow happens. Looks like 1-3" along the coast & 3-5" likely along & west of Interstate 95. After 12pm, look for patches of light snow & light rain.
*Travel---Poor this morning across the entire area. Road conditions will improve through the afternoon. main roads will be wet for the evening commute. Neighborhood streets/ sidewalks/ parking lots will slowly improve during the afternoon.
*Temps/Wind---Not a big storm so little if any wind and temps will hang around 30-35 for much of the day.
That's it! As we step into the evening hours, that sloppy slush will harden up as lows drop into the 20s under a partly cloudy sky.
We are dry & seasonable tomorrow but will watch an ocean storm tomorrow night & Friday morning. I do think the storm will throw snow onto the Cape/Islands & south shore late tomorrow night & Friday morning. It looks like 1-3" Boston to the Canal is possible and perhaps 3-6" out on Cape Cod/Islands. The weather improves during the day on Friday---but the temps don't, cold with highs in the 20s!
