The first snow of the season is in the rear view and we’re already looking ahead at what the next storm will bring. For many of us in eastern Mass, the snow won’t amount to much, but across the interior, a brief period of snow and ice could create a messy mix for several hours tomorrow morning. That’s why there’s a winter weather advisory posted in areas shaded in purple.
Some light snow breaks out around daybreak tomorrow northwest of 495 and then will transition to a brief period of freezing rain mid to late morning. Inside 495, any flakes that fall will be brief as milder air flips the precip to rain drops. By mid afternoon, temps range from the mid to upper 30s deep inland to near 50 at the coast!
Notice the snow #s below… not very impressing for many. However, a coating to a couple inches of snow with a brief period of freezing rain will be enough to create some slick travel across the interior tomorrow morning. Ski County will do well with this one. Many resorts pick up 10″+ up there.
Following this storm, an arctic front comes flying through here Wednesday AM with a snow squall or two and then with afternoon temps Wednesday only in the 20s and winds gusting past 40mph, a cold sting to the atmosphere will be felt. Wind chills Wednesday afternoon run in the single digits and below 0 at night.
Beyond Wednesday and Thursday, we’ll keep a close eye on late Friday and Friday night to see if a quick moving system tracks close enough to throw some more snow our way.
Have a great day!
