Tuesday

I hope everyone enjoyed the snow this past weekend. There is talk of a little more snow on Tuesday but I think it will be too warm here for snow so we should see a quick turn over to rain and unfortunately that will wash away most of the snow we got Saturday.

Benji

The snow storm for Saturday has been named. Storm Benji is due to arrive Saturday afternoon and continue through the night. The weather channel is predicting 5-8 inches.



Seems like every time I check the internet for updates on this storm, the snow amounts go up a little. I hope the roads arent too bad because I have Christmas shopping to do during the day and I want to attend the first hockey game of the season for Norton Saturday night.

Saturday Update

Here are a few more maps for snow totals Saturday afternoon into the night. WBZ changed their amounts by adding an inch to the totals they had last night. All the other snow maps remain the same as I posted yesterday.

more than a Dusting

I hope you are ready for some snow. What was supposed to be a dusting may be a little more than that. Here are all the snow maps that I can find








The snow should start Saturday afternoon but with the sun warming the pavement the snow will have a hard time sticking except on grasssy surfaces. Once the sun goes down then the snow will begin to accumulate on the roads.

After this storm we have another chance of snow next Wednesday. I'll be keeping an eye on that one

Just a Dusting

Are you ready to see a little of the white stuff falling from the sky? You may get your chance this weekend. There is a chance we will get some light flurries on both Saturday and Sunday. Right now it looks like the low pressure will stay far enough off shore so we won't get any plowable snow amounts. If anything changes I will let you know.

is it time for snow yet?

Hello all my fellow snow lovers. I spent the last three days in sunny warm Walt Disney World and then I come home to hear there is a possibility of snow this weekend. After enjoying all the Christmas decorations at the Disney parks, I am ready for the cold weather associated with Christmas here in the northeast. I will do some investigating about this and blog again either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Hurricane Jose

Jose is headed north to Massachusetts but is expected to take a turn to the east before reaching us. The storm will also weaken before reaching us because of the colder water temperatures in the north. Even though we are not getting a direct hit from this storm we will feel some if its effects. southeastern mass is expected to get over an inch of rain and some winds of 35 mph. There is a chance of some power outages so be sure to charge all your electronic devices. If anything changes I will blog about it.

Irma

Another hurricane is headed towards The US. Hurricane Irma is a category 4 hurricane headed towards Florida. Most of Southern Florida has been evacuated and schools are closed until further notice. The storm is scheduled to hit Florida sometime early Sunday with winds estimated to be 150 mph. I hope my family and friends (along with everyone else down there) stay safe.




 I heard the governor of Florida say "We can rebuild your house but we can't rebuild your life" He is asking everyone to evacuate to a safe area. Most people are listening to all the warnings so highways have been packed. This is one road Thursday afternoon



Irma is expected to be a category 4 when it hits southern Florida and then weaken as it travels inward.








Before hitting Florida Irma destroyed so many small islands and those Islands are getting a one two punch as Hurricane Jose is headed their way



Here in Massachusetts we wait to hear if we will get any remnants from these storms. I'll keep you posted

Hurricane Season

The time now is both Hurricane season and back to school season. I can still remember a year when we had a "hurricane day" and had to postpone the opening day of school.
Today all eyes are on Texas as hurricane Harvey hits. Hoping that everyone stays safe.
I just want to make sure New Englanders don't miss a potential storm coming our way next week. There is a storm near Florida that has not been named yet, but may become Irma.
Eric Fisher from channel 4 tweeted the following.

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.

March snow



The picture above is the headline from weather.com
We have 3 chance for snow but right now I will focus on Friday's snow. Yes we have snow arriving tomorrow morning. The snow should start around 6am with anywhere from 2 to 6 inches. Here are all the snow total maps I could find.









Norton is pretty close to the top of the 3-6 inch line
