Good morning everybody, The Bulletization Mobile(TM) kept we awake all night, beeping incessantly out my window, hollering at me that I’ve failed to mention its annoyingly loud presence in my life… it’s turning me into a punchy mess over here! Jane, stop this crazy thing!!!
–Pick of the week is today, hooray!
–High pressure builds through to our south, bringing mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 40s
–Low pressure will track east through southern/central VT tonight, which will increase clouds late at first
–Then, after midnight, snow will spread into the region north of the Route 2 corridor, with snow rain mix south of there
–The potential exists for northern CT to see mostly rain, but some could mix in there, too
–Lows will be in the low 30s
–Snow and rain will quit by late morning tomorrow
–In WMass, CMass, SVT and SWNH north of Route 2, we should see a coating to 2″ of snow, with 2-4″ in the higher terrain of SVT. Wouldn’t be surprised if Mt. Snow or Stratton got a half foot near the summit
–South of Route 2, some coatings are possible, maybe half inch to an inch in the western hilltowns or central/southern Berkshires and Taconics
–Snow/rain ships out by noon tomorrow with highs in the 30s, but then the cold front swings through, and the Canadian cold air mass unleashes into the region
–Wind Advisories will be likely tomorrow night into Friday morning with northwest winds gusting 35-50mph
–As the wind picks up, temps will plummet into the single digits to low teens, driving wind chills below zero by Friday morning early. Wind chill headlines may be needed in SVT/SWNH
–Friday is sunny but cold, with highs in the upper teens to low 20s, with winds slackening with time
–Lows will be in the single digits, near 0 degrees!
–On Saturday, clouds will increase in the morning as low pressure lifts northeast into the eastern Great Lakes
–Plenty of cold will be in place, so by mid/late afternoon we start off with accumulating snow
–However secondary low appears to form too late, and too far east to hold the cold in south of the VT/MA border
–Snow will change to ice and rain south of that line, with maybe 2-4″ on the ground before the change
–North of that line, SVT and SWNH see roughly 4-8″ with some sleet possibly mixing in, with up to 10″ toward central VT/NH
–Snow/ice/rain ends by Sunday noon, except for some snow showers in the Berkshires and southern Greens, with highs in the 30s and lows in the teens
–Much of next week looks cold and dry as Winter returns!
Have a great day!
