Love it or hate it we’ve been fairly lucky to make it through the Holidays with very little winter weather and we almost made it through this Holiday weekend without any snow/sleet/poor travel but it looks like tomorrow night we do get a wintry-type storm in New England. Granted the storm track is the same as it has been since early December—-passing through western New York (not an ideal track for snow)– but this storm will bump into arctic air. That’s a big difference which means the storm will start with snow/sleet before ending as rain/milder temps on Sunday morning. Here are some deets on the storm:
*No travel issues today-tonight or even tomorrow during the daylight hours
*Snow arrives between 6-9pm across the region
*Snow to sleet freezing rain between 10pm-midnight Saturday (plain rain coastal locations)
*Sleet & freezing rain continue overnight Sat into Sunday AM west of I-95. This will lead to poor travel for much of interior southern New England mid evening Saturday into Sunday morning.
*Temps slowly rise Sunday morning as rain/freezing rain taper to drizzle.
* No wind and or coastal flood concerns with this storm
After this storm swings through Sunday evening arctic air surges back into New England by Monday and is with us for much of next week. A clipper system may bring more light snow to New England Tuesday afternoon-evening.
Have a great weekend!
