Dangerous Mess Today – Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain

Good morning!

Snow has entered southern New England and is now working its way into Maine. Large parts of SNE as of 5 AM are already over to sleet. Sleet will take over for snow in a large part of New England, perhaps all the way to central and parts of northern New Hampshire. The SNE coast will gradually (quickly for a few) change to rain while inland, as well as into southern parts of Northern New England, a change to freezing rain is likely – a fairly significant ice event isn’t out of the cards in western MA. Far northern New England should stay all snow, and meanwhile, the NH/ME coast will see a mixed bag.

The worst of this event is ongoing and will continue through midday.

My current snow forecast:




High temperatures will range through the teens and 20s (scattered coastal low 30s) in Maine; 20s to mid 30s in NH, upper 20s to upper 30s in VT, low 30s to mid 40s in MA, and upper 30s and 40s in CT/RI. I might have another update later this morning. Enjoy your Tuesday and TRY TO AVOID DRIVING as it is a total mess! If you must travel, take it slow!!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
