Wet, Heavy Snow Hits North; Storm to Hit Region This Weekend

Snow continues to pile up in Northern New England, where over a foot of heavy, wet snow created perfect conditions for building the base in ski and snowmobile country.

In addition to the fun winter activities, the snow has provided, it also knocked out power to nearly 100,000 customers from Western Massachusetts through Northern and Central New England.

Though no arctic blast is expected in the coming days, the mountains will see periodic snow continuing all the way through Wednesday. Meanwhile, the rest of New England very slowly finds a drying trend as an increasing southwest wind takes hold for most.

Nonetheless, small rivers like the Assabet and Sudbury in Massachusetts have come into flood stage, inundating flood-prone, low-lying areas near the riverbanks. A few days of dry weather – outside of the continuing mountain snow – will take hold through the week’s end.

By the end of the week, a new storm will be approaching the region, but it seems that it will likely weaken as it moves into New England Friday night. It may perhaps bring some very light rain or snow.

The upcoming storm will most likely cloud the sky through Saturday, in anticipation of the next bona fide storm Saturday night through Sunday, when it's destined to deliver mostly rain.

In this active weather pattern, another storm appears likely by midweek next week, and that one may bring both rain and snow to the region in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
