The next storm I am tracking arrives Wednesday night and lasts into Thursday. Rain and heavy wind will be the primary impacts with this system. Some gusts up to 50 or 60 mph are possible during the overnight and very early morning hours of Thursday. Wind damage and power outages are possible, but they may be isolated. We will know more in the next 24 hours as we get closer to the storm’s arrival.
A second concern will be snow, sleet, and even some freezing rain at the onset of the storm (between 7-11 PM) on Wednesday. Most of our area won’t see much in the way of accumulation, but an 1-2″ is possible north and west of 295.
If you are driving into northern Connecticut or west central Massachusetts, snow accumulations will be much higher. 8-10″ of snow are possible along and just north of the Mass Pike. Plan for tough travel Wednesday night into Thursday morning in this area! -Pete Mangione
