Weather Now: Winter Weather Advisory — Accumulating Snow Wednesday Night


Finally, the winds will be easing tonight, and we’ll have a fairly quiet day on Wednesday…but snow arrives Wednesday evening….and a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for our area for Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

We’ll remain dry through tonight, but expect a very cold night with lows around 12 and wind chills down to zero, at times.

Our next system will be arriving from the middle of the country on Tuesday.  The moisture associated with the system will be moving through the Great Lakes Wednesday morning and will continue to head our way in the afternoon.

Wednesday, during the day, will be quiet, but we’ll see sunshine giving way to clouds.  It’s possible a few flurries will be floating through the air late Wednesday afternoon, but the steadier snow arrives after dark.

It’ll be a little colder Wednesday with the fading sunshine…highs only around 25. The winds will be much lighter though!

The Wednesday evening commute will be mainly dry, then the steadier (but light) snow moves in after 6PM. 

Small accumulations are possible before midnight, but most of what we get with this next system will come after midnight.

Snowfall rates could be as high as 1 to 1.5″ per hour early Thursday morning and roads will become snow-covered and slick.

The steady snow tapers off to snow showers between 6 and 8am, but the Thursday morning commute will likely be slow with messy roads.  Also, school delays are quite possible…maybe a couple cancellations.

We’re expecting a widespread 2 to 4″ of snow here in Southern New England, and it should be all snow.  Temperatures above our heads will be plenty cold enough through the duration of this mini-snow storm to support all snow.
