StormTeam10: Tracking cold and SNOW!
The next 10 days brings several bouts of POTENTIAL winter weather...the first arrives early Friday morning.
Low pressure quickly passes well to our south and we remain on the northern fringe.
Although this forecast still could shift a bit, it appears as though we may be facing a few hours of light to moderate snow, which would hit during the morning commute.
A few inches of snow are possible with less farther inland and the highest potential along the southern coastlines of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Again, this would have an impact early in the day...the snow ends around noontime with drier, colder air building for Friday evening.
A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for SE Mass for the POTENTIAL of 4-7" of snow...this is not certain at this point, but a possibility. Future forecast runs will clarify this.
Right now, our best estimate is for a few inches of snow for much of the area...less farther inland.
This weekend's temps look VERY cold (again)...nearly identical to what we experienced LAST weekend...lows in the teens, highs Saturday in the 20s with wind chills in the single digits.
Sunday and Monday look dry and colder than usual for mid March...then there's TUESDAY! Now, it's still early BUT we are seeing fairly consistent signals that a sizeable storm will form over the water to our south on many of our forecast models.
The exact track is not certain at this early point, but IF -- and I stress IF -- this storm follows a path that most forecast models are suggesting then we will be facing a major winter snow storm..
Again, this is early, but it is something to keep a close eye on over the weekend.
Beyond the Tuesday storm potential, it looks colder than normal ALL of next week with perhaps one more chance of accumulating on St. Patrick's Day (I know that's over a week away at this point...but this is just for planning purposes!)
Lots of fast moving late winter changes ahead in our forecast these next 10 days, StormTeam10 will keep you covered!
