Storm to Impact New England Monday

A winter storm will push into New England on Monday, bringing up to six inches to part of New England.



    One of the first TV markets I worked in at the beginning of my career was good ol' Abilene, Texas...I mention this, just because the panhandle of Texas will have a small part in how a storm comes together for us here in New England on Monday. Snow will develop there & in Oklahoma on Sunday, then the storm will interact with a trough in the Northern Plains as it heads towards New England, picking up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic on its way. This time around, most of New England will be on the "warm" side of the storm, so many of us are looking at rain. This is how I think it will break down: (Please look at image)... Snow will start to fall on Monday morning through the afternoon for central & northern areas of Vermont, Coos county in New Hampshire and parts of central and Northern Maine. 3" to 6" inches of snow sounds reasonable to me at this point. In central New England there will be a period of wintry mix, while in Southern New England rain develops in the afternoon and continues through late evening...heavy rain at times. The storm is still more than 48 hours away so this is just a preliminary look! Tune in to NECN and Tim Kelley for the latest track of the storm & changes in the forecast, and have a great weekend!
