From Lightning to Snow

 We sure did chew up a lot of snow the past few days with the mild temps, fog & rain. After looking at the maps perhaps it was done to make room for new snow…wait, what?! Yup, might as well embrace it (or deal with it) because until this pattern snaps around Mid April snow will remain an option on the forecasting table.

We have rain this morning that is tied to a cold front (yesterday’s rain was due in part to a warm front) and this cold front has put a lid on spring. Our temps aren’t too bad now–low 40s but they won’t move much through the day even though rain tapers by afternoon. Another cold front heads this way for late tonight & the weekend.

This second cold front will grab some moisture from an ocean storm and produce some light snow across much of southern New England. Boo. Accumulating snow will be held in check due to a warm/wet ground as well as intensity of the snow will be lacking. Despite those two factors snow will still accumulate through the day. I’d plan on 1-2″ of snow with the highest amounts west of Rt 128. Minor travel disruption possible on neighborhood streets….interstates just wet/greasy.

Sunday by the default is the better of the 2 weekend days with mostly sunny skies but temps are still cool for this time of year only reaching 40 (normal high is 50).

Have a good weekend!
