UPDATED AROUND 9:30AM:
The snow reports are continuing to come in:
There is also a recent report of 6.0 inches in Exeter and I also recently measured 2.0 inches of snow in the Pinpoint Weather Yard.
You can see our final accumulation map on the bottom of this blog. We also don’t want to forget about the wind. Here are the wind speed you can expect throughout the day:
Those numbers are not exact because it will depend on your location, but we wanted to show you that the strongest gusts will be from the late morning into the early afternoon.
The heaviest of the snow will fall from this morning into the afternoon. During this time, travel will become dangerous to near impossible at times with white-out conditions. Strong winds will also lead to the potential of scattered tree damage power outages.
AMOUNT OF SNOW ON THE GROUND:
Snow will start to lessen in intensity late this afternoon into the evening. Most of the accumulating snow should be over by 8PM; although some lingering snow showers are possible late tonight into Wednesday morning.
WHAT WILL THE CONSISTENCY OF THE SNOW BE LIKE?
Below is a model forecast (courtesy Pivotal Weather) for what the snow consistency will be like this afternoon. It shows around a 10 to 1 snow to liquid ratio which is typical for southern New England. So while some heavy, wet snow has been falling this morning, the snow that falls later this morning and this afternoon will fall as a lighter consistency. However, it won’t be an extremely light and fluffy snow, but it won’t be as bad as the heavy, wet paste that fell last week. Of course, we will have a lot more snow this time.
Here is what we are expecting for final accumulations:
Stay tuned, we will be updating this blog through out the morning with more information. -Pete Mangione
