Good morning everybody, aside from some flurries and occasional snow showers that still have to track north to south through the WMass region this morning, this storm is finally ending for WMass.
But as you can see on the attached radar shot, the northwestern edge of the snow from our departing storm is still dropping snow over Worcester County, northeast CT, and easternmost Hampden and Hampshire Counties, so some additional coatings to an inch are possible there this morning, so give yourself some extra time.
I am going to summarize the rest of our upcoming weather through the weekend below via double-dashes, which are made favorite bulletization delineation instrument of choice.
–Snow will be tapering off this morning, and ending
–After a cloudy start, skies will break up and we’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies with northwest winds gusting up to 30mph and blowing some snow around
–In other words, all the snow that hung on our trees could come whooshing down on you as you drive, drastically reducing visibility briefly, so just be alert
–Highs will only reach the low to mid 30s with fresh snow pack
–Lows will drop into the upper teens to low 20s as clouds increase late
–For Wednesday, a northern stream disturbance will whip through the flow, and bring clouds and scattered snow showers with highs in the low to mid 30s
–Lows will be in the mid to upper 20s with some more snow showers possible
–A few more flurries are possible in the hills on Thursday with partly sunny skies expected in valley locations with continued cold temps and highs in the low to mid 30s
–Thursday night will be cold and drop into the 15-20 degree range
–By Friday, we have more of a robust Alberta Clipper system that will be racing west to east through our region, likely arriving by early afternoon
–Highs will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s
–This system could bring some light snow accumulations, so stay tuned
–Lows Friday night will be cold behind the departing low, dropping into the teens
–The weekend finally looks nice!!!
–Expect mostly sunny skies both days as high pressure builds in from the southwest
–Highs Saturday will be 25-30, and highs Sunday will be 35-40 as we moderate our temps in advance of the next system, which will pass to our northwest, keeping us on the milder side of its center
–The big question is when does precipitation arrive from our Monday inclement weather maker
–If it gets here early enough, we could deal with a period of sleet and freezing rain to affect the morning commute, before it all turns to plain rain
In other words, stay tuned folks, we still have some active weather, but nothing like we just went through.
That was an impressive, long-duration, early-season, prolific snow producer.
Again please post your totals and conditions below, and thanks for all of your reports, supports, encouragement and interactions! Have a great day!
