    (Published Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018)

    An area of low pressure will head east from the Great Lakes region today, redeveloping off the Mid-Atlantic Coast on Wednesday, which will bring the potential for several inches of snow to portions of the region late tonight into Wednesday afternoon.

    Winter storm warnings and advisories have been issued around the region in anticipation of this snowfall.

    Precipitation type is uncertain along and southeast of the Boston-Providence Corridor, where maritime air pushes onshore.

    Snow starts flying late Tuesday night from south to north across the area, increasing in intensity by tomorrow morning.

    We're expecting the heaviest snow to fall around midday Wednesday across interior Southern New England. Right now, we're looking at a swath of 3 to 6 inches of snowfall, with diminishing amounts south of Boston to Hartford, where temperatures hover near-freezing with mixed precipitation and rain.

    Temperatures today and Wednesday will be near seasonable for this time of year in the 30s.

    Dry weather likely follows Thursday into Friday as high pressure settles in overhead.

    A new snowpack and colder temperatures through the rest of the week will limit additional river runoff as ice jams continue on some rivers.

    Unseasonably mild temperatures are expected Saturday and Sunday, with high temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 40s.

    Looking ahead to the start of next week, a cold front is likely to bring a period of rain on Monday into the evening. We will need to keep an eye out for the possibility of some mixed precipitation or ice at the start with a cold high pressure to the north of New England.
