We begin to dry out around southern New England this evening after receiving almost 2 inches across Metro West and the North Shore, but the snow machine continues to crank new snow across the north where more than a foot of snow has fallen over the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont.
This heavy snow knocked out power to nearly 100,000 customers this morning from western Massachusetts through northern and central New England.
Snow showers will continue to fall tonight and tomorrow with additional totals ranging between 2-8 inches.
The wind out of the northwest will gust near 25 mph on Wednesday bringing a slight chance for flurries during the afternoon to sections of central Massachusetts and western Connecticut.
The area of low pressure will be exiting the region Wednesday evening and that’s when we will begin to see conditions improve for all.
Nonetheless, small rivers like the Assabet and Sudbury in Massachusetts and the Pawtuxet in Rhode Island 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 week’s end, when a new approaching storm seems likely to weaken as it moves into New England Friday night, perhaps bringing some very light rain or snow.
Most of our Saturday will be dry but more rain is on the way Saturday night into Sunday as a new storm approaches from the west. Our pattern looks to stay active next week, with another storm possible Tuesday into Wednesday which appears to bring a mix of rain and snow.
