No Cold?....No Snow.
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
We're still in a stormy pattern and it's time to start chatting about our next storm---heading this way for Wednesday. It will be mainly rain as there is no arctic air to be found in southern new England (kind of important if you want a snowstorm.) There will be a burst of some wet snow for a few hours at the start of the storm (5am Wednesday) but plan on using umbrellas over shovels & plows.
Before that happens, we have a day that will offer mainly cloudy skies and seasonably mild temps---mid 40s. The other great thing about today---little to no wind. We'll hold into the dry conditions well into the evening hours with temps settling back into the upper 30s.
Ok---back to that storm. Wednesday is a stormy day--just not snow. Look for the precipitation to arrive around 5am Wednesday & be with us for about 12 hours---tapering off 5-6pm. Most towns will pick up between 1-2" of rain and that rain will come with wind along the coastline, gusting at times between 20-30mph. In terms of snowfall before the rain---primarily confined to the Worcester Hills and the highest elevations at that. (our *special* map in the maps section details how much snow falls before changing to rain).
This storm gets rather clingy---sticking with us for Thursday & even Friday, albeit in a much weaker state. Each of those days will offer cloudy skies and a scattering of rain showers. Those rain showers will mix with wet snow showers on Friday. Drier & brighter weather slides into New England just in time for the weekend--breaking the pattern of weekend storms. Yay.
Have a great day!
