PM WEATHER UPDATE: Friday Storm Bringing 1-2 Feet of Snow

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

 

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Central Mass from Friday morning through Saturday afternoon for what they are calling "a potential historic winter storm and blizzard" that could drop up to two feet of snow on the region. Heavy snow is expected, with snowfall rates of two to three inches per hour possible.

The latest weather data and model runs seem to reconfirm my earlier expectations. A major winter storm is on tap for New England, one that if the current projected track holds true, is likely to exceed a foot in accumulation and could approach double that at some locations here in Central Massachusetts.

When Will It Hit Central MA?

The storm center will spin up off the Mid-Atlantic coast Thursday night with snow likely beginning here around or shortly before daybreak on Friday. Indications are that the snow will come down heavy through the afternoon and night on Friday, then gradually taper off and end on Saturday. After seeing today’s data, I am less inclined to think there will be a significant change to sleet and/or rain in the middle of the storm, except right along the Rhode Island south coast and over the Cape and Islands, and even there the storm could stay all snow. Winds likely will gust over 50mph and that should cause considerable drifting.

Again, I caution, that with the beginning of the storm still over a day and a half away and with the storm not yet a formed reality, as we are all too aware there could be significant forecast changes. I will continue to bring you updates as the storm gets closer and as the situation warrants.
