Spring Snow

I know the calendar says we are in the spring season, but mother nature isn't finished with winter. We have more snow in the forecast for Friday into Saturday



I will continue to read reports and make sure this doesn't turn into anything more.

March Snow Storm - the latest

This is the headline on weather.com


This is supposed to be a powerful storm but the storm seems to have taken a slight turn to the west which means we now have a rain/snow line. We will have to keep track of where this storm crosses over the state. right now it appears that the snow amounts will be lower in southeastern mass due to rain. These are the latest snow total maps.

















The storm will be starting right around the morning rush hour and the snow will come down heavy for several hours. 2 inches per hour










Everyone be safe and have fun in the snow,

Blizzard Watch

I m posting again because there has been an update. Most of the eastern part of the state is now in a blizzard watch.




These are the storm headlines



The timeline is as follows...



A few TV stations changed their snow total maps so here they are






My next post will be sometime Monday afternoon. Enjoy the snow everyone
















Sunday update

I hope everyone is ready for a large snowfall. Every meteorologist seems to be predicting the same amount for us. They are all on board for 12-18 inches of snow.
The snow will start to fall just before the morning commute and then continue all day into the night.



The low is traveling a little faster than first expected so the snow should stop over night Tuesday not linger into the day Wednesday, but then there is the big clean up for Wednesday. There will be times on Tuesday that the snow is falling at 2 inches per hour.
The other problem will be the wind. You should prepare for some power outages.



There is a chance for blizzard conditions. The National Weather Service defines a blizzard as a storm which contains large amounts of snow OR blowing snow, with winds in excess of 35 mph and visibility of less than 1/4 mile. These conditions have to exist for a minimum of 3 straight hours to be called a blizzard.

Here are all the different snow total maps that I found

 this one from CBS Boston

 this one from channel 5 in Boston











If anything changes I will post an update. 
Enjoy your snow day

Snow storm Stella

Stella is headed our way Tuesday (very early morning) through Wednesday late morning. The exact track is not certain yet but we are sure to get some snow. most forecasters are saying we should expect a foot



The amount we get depends on where that powerful Low travels. a west track means a rain/snow line in southern mass, and east track means smaller amounts of snow for everyone because the heavy snow stays out to sea and a track through the middle of the west and east track means over a foot of snow.  I should know more by Sunday afternoon.

A blizzard warning has already been posted for parts of our state by the national weather service.



Weather.com hasn't posted amounts but they did post this map showing we should expect heavy snow.


I will post an update tomorrow afternoon.

Pi-Day Nor'easter

All my attention is on the snowstorm heading our way, Tuesday (3-14). The storm is still days away so as all the forecasters say, we can't tell the exact path of the storm yet. It is too early to tell. I will say that weather.com has increased their amounts from what they posted yesterday


yesterday they had 5 - 8 during the day and now they have 8-12 during the day
yesterday they had 3-5 falling at night and now they have 5 - 8 falling at night.

Accuweather also feels that we will get a substantial storm with the chance of blizzard conditions.



There are two storms, one coming from the south and one coming from the west, the two storms are expected to join and give us a snowstorm with plowable amounts.

I will write another update tomorrow.

3 chances of snow

Here is the latest. Friday's snow looks to be only about 3 or 4 inches but most of this is coming during the morning commute.

The snow predicted for Sunday looks to be going south so we may not see any snow at all

Tuesday may be a problem.

Early predictions from the weather channel show 5-8 inches falling during the day then an additional 3 - 5 inches falling Tuesday night.

I will continue to keep my readers updated when changes in the forecast occur.
