11:15 PM 3/13/17 – Quick Storm Map Update

Decided to quickly update my map to reflect likely sharper gradients and lower totals to the SE.

There is still some uncertainty about a dry slot. If a dry slot takes place, it would be most likely south and east of a Boston to Providence line, but one could occur elsewhere as well.

The mix line could waffle northwest and southeast a little bit, and thus could dramatically affect snowfall amounts for those outside of the 18-24″ zone. Those in the 18-24″ zone should be safe, along with most in the 12-18″, but beyond there, snowfall is uncertain due to that factor.

Have a good night!

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!
