NEW: March Storm Tonight Will Dump 6-10 Inches in Worcester Area
Monday, March 18, 2013
A storm center will form over the Delmarva Peninsula later today and intensify off the New Jersey coast overnight. Then it will move over Cape Cod tomorrow afternoon. That track combined with very cold air for this time of year banked up over central and northern New England means mostly snow for us here in the Worcester area with a chance of a brief change over to sleet and freezing rain around midday tomorrow. A change to rain seems very likely from the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border on southward.
Commute + accumulations
While the evening commute today should be just fine, the morning commute tomorrow should be very tough just about everywhere, except possibly along coastal communities.
Right now it looks like accumulations should be in the 6”-10” range here in the Worcester area with slightly more possible north of the city into New Hampshire and Maine and slightly less from the Mass Pike southward into Rhode Island.
As is almost always the case a storm track farther offshore would bring us more snow and less chance for any mixing or change to sleet and rain. That is something I’ll be watching and evaluating carefully during the next several hours.
