Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Ok, we still have quite a bit of cleaning up to do after yesterday’s nor’easter that came barreling through. The highest snow totals from the storm were found across northern Worcester County and into southern New Hampshire. Locations that picked up 6″ or more seemed to have the most trouble with power outages. http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=BOX&product=PNS&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off
That storm is now out of here, and in it’s wake, lots of shoveling to do near and outside 495 as well. Get in done today because the sloppy mess that’s out there freezes up solid tonight.
Tonight we also watch the potential of more snow come on in. Yes, more snow. Feels like Christmas and not Thanksgiving with this pattern, huh? Anyway, ironically, the locations that saw the least snow/sleet with the nor’easter will have the best chance of some accumulation with this next system.
It won’t be a big storm, as the main area of low pressure passes several hundred miles south and east of us. However, extending back from that storm will be a thin strip of lower pressure in the atmosphere all the way into eastern Mass. Combined some upward motion to the atmosphere, thanks to that lower pressure, and quite a bit of moisture still in place, and we get some snow to break out. Most snow falls from 2:00AM to 11:00AM Friday. The steadiest snow is across eastern Mass, especially Southeastern Mass. Most towns pick up and inch or two with this, with a locally higher total or two possible across the Route 24 corridor, east into Plymouth County. It’s a bit of a sneaky, localized system, so we’ll keep an eye on this one. I’d at least plan on some slick spots on the roads early tomorrow. The afternoon looks much better.
Looking for the 50s again? We’ll find in by Sunday.
