A wintry mix possible by the week's end
You've probably heard the buzz: snow is on the way! While this may come to fruition, the StormTeam10 crew is keeping a close eye on how the pair of systems plays out here in southern New England.
As of noon on Tuesday, the two primary long-range models (European and American) have different outlooks on the possibility of snow. Let's talk about the European first. The image shows a strong consensus of "low pressure locations" for the first system to stay slightly offshore.
This would be a promising snow system if it were to come farther west. But with it staying offshore, the chance of snow/rain is limited. Southeastern Massachusetts could see some activity, but as you see below, accumulation would be minimal if this exact path verifies.
The American model (GFS) has a bit of a different take. That solution has it a little more robust and lays more than a dusting.
This models previous output had even more snow heading our, but has scaled back it's totals already. Bottom line: we still have time to decifer and nail down it's impacts in the next day or two. We will be updating this blog all week long to ensure everyone stays in the know.
