Here’s the latest scoop on tomorrow’s winter weather.
Expect 5-8″ (especially the lower end of that) for most of New England north of the Mass Pike and outside of Route 128. Further south expect 3-5″, then as you approach south of a Hartford-Providence-Brockton line expect more like 1-3″ and finally, for Cape Cod and the Islands and parts of southern RI and CT, expect under to about an inch. Snow begins after midnight tonight, heaviest mid to late morning. Snow is the predominant precipitation type for much of the day in the 5-8″ zone before the onset of any freezing rain.
A period of freezing rain is also likely at most spots, with amounts generally between a trace and a tenth of an inch of ice. Timing is tomorrow afternoon and evening.
South of the Mass Pike, expect a changeover to plain rain Saturday afternoon. Further to the north, most plain rain is confined to Saturday night and Sunday.
Sorry for the brevity; I was very busy this evening.
Have a great evening!
