Discussion

It continues to look like a massive snowstorm for much of New England with two feet or more of snow possible in Boston by early Saturday morning. In fact, it looks like an all-out blizzard for much of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, southern Maine, southeastern New Hampshire and parts of New York State with major snowfalls of 1-2 feet, strong winds of 60+ mph and even thundersnows. The NYC metro region could very well be getting an all-out blizzard as well tomorrow night. The general scenario looks like this for around here: the onset of the storm late tonight/early tomorrow will feature a mixed bag of precipitation and there can be some slippery spots for the morning commute. Then there will be a changeover to plain rain during the day on Friday as temperatures climb through the 30's. By late afternoon or early evening, however, as the storm moves to the northeast and intensifies rapidly, colder air is drawn in and the rain will change to accumulating snow. Significant snow of at least 6-12 inches is likely in and around the NYC region with very strong winds (50+ mph) at the back end of this storm and there can be thundersnow mixed into the picture. This is a very dynamic storm and small changes can mean big differences so stay tuned.
