After being pummeled with snow the northeast will experience yet another round on Tuesday as a clipper comes through. This time, however no big accumulations but a general 1-3, 2-4 inch event for most in Southern New England during the day on Tuesday. After that there will be a brief warm up towards the end of the week with temperatures reaching into the 40′s near 50 by Thursday and Friday.
The thaw however will be short lived as it looks cold right through most of March right now. Given the winter we’ve had it’s not surprising. A close analog this year (1993-1994) was cold and snowy right through March and that may be the case this year as well. Spring lovers be patient!
Video update on the storm is currently being uploaded. Major impacts felt from Texas to New England from this one. I expect very heavy snow to overspread CT tomorrow and quickly accumulate to 6-10 inches for most before changing to a wintry mix and rain towards dark. A dry slot will work in over night before going back to snow Friday morning. Major travel impacts form Thursday through Friday morning at this point. More details coming in the video.
Here is a look at what I’m thinking for late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Worst of the storm will be Wednesday morning with snowfall rates of 1+ inch an hour.
A snowstorm is on the way for the mid-atlantic and northeast on Tuesday into Wednesday. Models are now coming together to paint a significant snow storm with heaviest snow focused along the coast where a foot is possible including NYC and Boston. More later…
