“Running late Grandma—-darn traffic (weather) has fouled things up”—I’m pretty sure that will be uttered several times later today as well as tomorrow but for completely different reasons. Today, it’s due to traffic volume across the region but tomorrow it will be due to a major early winter storm affecting the northeast. No weather issues today though with dry & mild the entire day here in New England. Even this evening, the temps stay near 40 and roads stay dry.
Not so much tomorrow as the storm head for the northeast early in the day reaching southern New England by 9-11am. At first, it’s just rain but by afternoon that rain changes to snow. This changeover is a process and will take some time–especially along & east of I-95. That slow process means snow totals are lowest along the coast (including Boston) but farther inland it will be easy and that’s where most of the snow adds up. Like yesterday, central/western New England easily see 6″ of snow with this storm with most of that falling after 2pm. Closer to the coast plan on 1-3″ of snow with most of that occurring after 7pm. Travel becomes poor across all of New England throughout Wednesday afternoon (even air travel will get snarled as this storm has a reach down into the mid-atlantic—rain but still expect some delays). The last flakes (& cape rain) fly around 10-11pm tomorrow night. Thanksgiving will be white for many and also mainly dry with temps only in the 30s (Some of those early morning 5k turkey trots will have have issues with snowbanks & OR unplowed parking lots). Cold & dry weather is expected for the remainder of the holiday weekend.
