A Touch Of Snow
Posted by Chris Lambert
In a month that can spawn vicious snowstorms (35th anniversary of the Blizzard of '78 this week), we have a relatively quiet pattern over the next several days, aside from a bit of light snow that falls over the 2nd half of the weekend.
Early this evening, snow showers are in and out across the Cape and Islands, as well as Buzzards Bay. For most of us, we're flake free until midnight, but after that, a few flurries and scattered snow showers slide through. MetroWest, South Shore and North Shore, coatings of snow by tomorrow morning are hit or miss from town to town thanks to the scattered nature of these snow showers. However, it's more likely that a coating to an inch of snow greet many areas across the Cape and Islands and Buzzards Bay by early Sunday, thanks to more more moisture there with a southwest wind off the water.
Light snow tomorrow takes a break for many areas mid morning, into the early afternoon, only to see another tick up in snow shower activity mid afternoon into the night. The steadiest snow once again is across the Cape and Islands with a total of 1-3" falling there. Coastal Plymouth County from Marshfield on south, back into southern Bristol County, pick up 1-2" totals by early Monday AM, with a general coating to an inch for the rest of us. The bottom line is, the big ocean storm gets it's act together too late to give us a big snowstorm, but there will occasionally be slippery spots starting tonight, through tomorrow night.
The rest of the week looks uneventful and cool with a few flurries Wednesday, and perhaps a batch of snow,mix and rain on Friday. Plenty of time to watch that one.
