A Little Snow Tonight

As far as snow storms go, this one is pretty wimpy. Periods of light to occasionally moderate snow will continue overnight before tapering to flurries from midnight to 3 A.M.  Kids, do your homework!  This storm will produce a coating to 3” of snow. The highest amounts (around 3”) will be found in bands in parts of eastern Connecticut. The jackpot amounts will be along the east coast of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine where some towns could pick up a foot of snow!

The wind will pick up tomorrow morning after the snow moves out.  Northwest winds could gust up to 30-40 mph with partly cloudy skies. Tomorrow is chilly.  But Wednesday is colder. High temps will get stuck in the teens inland with lows approaching zero. A bigger storm is possible heading into the end of the work week.  A storm developing in the Ohio valley on Friday will move south of New England Friday night into Saturday. This storm will be a quick hitter and COLD with all snow (no mixing this time).  Right now early estimates are for 3”-6”. But we still have a few days to adjust the forecast.

Tonight: Periods of light to occasionally moderate snow. Low: 16-22

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy, windy and cold. High: 25-30.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy, cold. High: 15-20.

Wednesday night: COLD! Lows: -5 to 5.

Thursday: Sunny. High: Low 20s

Friday: Snow breaks out around or just after the morning commute through Friday night. High: Upper 20s.
