Snow to Rain
The following is a quote from channel 7 meteorologist Jeremy Reiner about the next storm, Pax.
"OK...so this storm is big and will lead to poor travel across much of the northeast as well as poor air travel up & down the east coast. It is a warmer storm so a rain/snow line issue has presented itself. Snow will change to rain from downtown Boston south along the South Shore & out onto the Cape. The issue is how far inland does that rain/snow line push?"
"I think along I-495 AND north of the MA Pike is where the storm remains all snow as well as the highest amounts (10"). As you travel between I-495 & Rt.128 the snow totals will come down quickly--perhaps to as little as 2-5" of snow in downtown Boston (even less along Rt.3/Rt.6). For all of us it's a heavy, wet snow that will be clingy to things like trees & power lines. You combine that with wind gusts between 25-45 mph and some brief power disruption is likely late Thursday-Thursday Night."
