A weak storm system will pass well south and east of southern New England tomorrow, bringing some light snow… and possibly a wintry mix at the coast. This will not be a major storm… however, it could create some traffic troubles during the evening commute. The majority of the morning commute looks dry, with some light flurries developing after 7am. The snow may pick up for a time late morning through early afternoon… it may mix with rain at times towards the coast. Light snow and a wintry mix will continue into the evening and night before tapering off towards dawn on Wednesday. The temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s in the afternoon… so, while the snow is falling, it may have a tough time accumulating until after dark. We are most concerned about some slippery travel and reduced visibility during the evening.
Here’s a look at the latest thinking in terms of snowfall accumulations:
There’s only going to be a narrow band of potential accumulating snow…. Keep in mind that it wouldn’t take much of a shift in the storm’s track further south to bring “just flurries” for RI/SE MA and keep any heavier/steadier precipitation over the ocean.
