Plowable Snow, Power Outages Probable This Weekend

    Another disturbance will cross New England today - similar to yesterday, scattered showers will develop from midday onward until sunset, but unlike yesterday, widespread wind gusts over 45 mph with numerous hailstones are not in the forecast...though a few lightning strikes can't be ruled out.

    With today's disturbance, a cold front crosses the region, meaning high temperatures in the 50s today will drop into the 20s overnight tonight with a clearing sky as dry, Canadian air moves in, ensuring sunshine but highs only around 40 Saturday.

    Chilly air will remain in place Sunday as a storm approaches from the south, and after thickening clouds Sunday morning, snow will develop.

    Though exact start time and amounts could vary based upon storm track, our latest thinking is a start time during the morning in Southern Connecticut, midday Central Massachusetts, and afternoon for Eastern Massachusetts...likely waiting until evening in Northern New England.

    Though a rain/snow combination may start the event, a change to all snow is likely for most spots, with the best chance of renewed or continued mixing in Southeastern Massachusetts.

    Times of heavy snow Sunday night will continue into Monday morning with a freshening northeast, then north wind - combined with expected plowable snow amounts of at least 3" to 6" for many with a possible stripe of higher amounts, power outages seem probable.

    The storm exits by midday Monday, and after some midweek clouds and a few showers, we're likely to rebound back around or even over 60 degrees by late next week, with next weekend looking much different in the exclusive 10-day forecast.
