A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for ALL of southern and central New England from Thursday morning through Friday.
It stays dry and cold tonight with clouds gradually increasing. Lows drop to the upper ‘teens to lower 20s.
HOUR BY HOUR FORECAST OVERNIGHT THRU 6AM THURSDAY
Morning commute looks dry….light snow arrives between late morning or early afternoon
Light snow Thursday afternoon will become steadier by evening. Evening commute will have reduced visibility along along wet and/or thin slushy coatings by then
Over the course of about 30-36 hours, we’re expecting 3-6″ of snow. While that’s a light to moderate accumulation, it will be more spread out over a 24-36 hour time line
The expected accumulations will be very gradual over a 30-36 hour period. This should make the snow very “manageable” . A “rapid” accumulation is not expected
Here is another way of looking at the accumulation forecast with how much snow will be on the ground at certain times of the day. It’s a “cumulative running” total with the final amounts by Friday evening
TIMELINE: Thursday morning commute remains cold, dry and cloudy with no travel issues. Light snow begins in the afternoon and likely by Thursday evening. Snow will mix with sleet at times along the coast overnight and lead to travel impacts for the Friday morning commute. Light snow will continue on Friday, perhaps with some sleet mixed in, before ending later Friday night.
Cold and dry weather returns for the weekend.
