One down, one more to go. But at least we have Tuesday off. In fact, it’s the brightest day we’ve seen in over a week! The sun should help us get well above the melting point in the afternoon as we jump back into the 40s in most places. On Tuesday night, colder air will settle in — just as the next storm rolling in from the southern plains takes aim at New England.
The Wednesday morning commute should see steely, gray clouds with a few flakes possible by mid-morning. Snow extended into the late morning and early afternoon in all areas, even on Cape Cod. This initial snowpack will be significant in some cases, with road conditions and travel quickly descending.
A solid 3-5 inches are possible overall (with most spots on the lower end of that range) and 1-3 along the coast.
While this snow is significant, warmer air will also quickly move into the area, switching us to overnight rain as temperatures rise. Gusty winds are expected across southeastern Massachusetts – specifically the Cape and Islands – with this mild air moving in late overnight and very early Thursday morning.
Most of the storm should be gone by Thursday morning, but the heat remains. Highs should reach 50 degrees in some places, 40 degrees in others, as winds shift back to the west. We’ll turn briefly colder on Friday, with highs returning to the 40s this weekend. The pattern should soften early next week, but there could be more storms through the middle of the week.
