And Down They Go
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Numbers have dropped for the storm:
Now before you go slinging mud, keep this in mind...
I gave snow amounts a couple of days ago because I felt there was a need to get out the word, not to fuel hype. If I talk snow, I give numbers. It's just the way I roll. I don't really like to dance around the subject, throw scenarios and 'what ifs' around. We're all busy, so I just get to the point.
We're all big boys and girls here. Things change. Storms have a mind of their own and sometimes don't play by the rules. This was one of them. Track, timing and precipitation amounts were right on. The storm's strength, on the other hand...
And that's where we start the discussion. With temperatures hovering in the mid and upper 30s we relied heavily on the fact the the storm will be strong and generate its own cold. That isn't happening. Not now, not tomorrow, not Sunday. So the numbers come down.
Timeline stays the same:
- Startup mid/late PM Saturday. Light snow/mix/rain.
- Rain gets the upper hand and pushes the snow briefly to 495 late at night
- Cold gets back into the act and pushes the snow back to the South Shore by Sunday morning
- Steady light snow through Sunday morning and early afternoon
- Splashover at high tide Sunday morning.
- Winds gust around 40mph at the coast Sunday
Pattern's still active! More on next week's event...later....much later.
