Morning Mess… Drying By Kickoff

Certainly it’s not the easiest weather to wake up and spring out of bed on.  Rain drops hitting the roof top acts like extra motivation to pull up the covers up a little higher and doze back off.  

Rain is steady, and at times heavy, this morning before tapers off early this afternoon.  The steadiest precipitation ends from west to east between Noon and 2pm, with just a patch of drizzle or stray leftover shower after that.  While most of the area is experiencing rain early this morning, there has been some wet snow/freezing rain mixed in near and outside 495.  While the air a couple thousand feet up initially is too warm for accumulating snow this morning, that warm layer will cool just enough to flip rain to some wet snow by mid to late morning across the interior.  The best chance for a slushy coating to a couple inches will be near and northwest of 495, and far northern Essex County.   Even a brief period of wet snow mid to late morning is possible closer to 128 if enough cold air wraps back around this storm before the precipitation tapers off.   Rain/snow tapers from west to east early this afternoon with the bulk of the action done by 2pm.  There may be some linger drizzle, spotty showers after that, but shouldn’t be too much of an issue for the Pats game.  Kickoff temps in the mid 30s. 

Sunday night and early Monday, a few batches of snow showers may drop a coating to an inch or two for some, otherwise the story early next week is the cold air with highs only in the 20s!  

Skiing up north this weekend?  No worries, this storm is all snow up there Saturday.
