Tuesday snow storm for Boston, MA?  Next week’s forecast – NBC Boston

As much as we’d like to say this weekend’s near-record temperatures will stick around across New England for a while, highs in the 50s and 60s will be fleeting.

After the weekend, we’ll be back in a blast of mid-February cold air, and in true New England fashion, there’s a new winter storm brewing on the other side of the weekend. This becomes a problem, in part, because warming up won’t do us any favors in getting cool air quickly.

What to do against snowy Monday through Tuesday

While most of next week will be spent with freezing temperatures, setting the stage ahead of a storm Monday evening, temperatures are very mild in the mid 40s. Although this is not a record, it is still above the climatological average for February 12 – when the temperature is 10 degrees higher than normal.

As onshore winds blow, the air above the water will also bring milder temperatures, reducing snow accumulation. The storm is expected to arrive Monday night into Tuesday morning, which bodes well for a rapid drop in temperatures, leaving little room for recovery.

The storm’s path may bring snow again

The models were consistently inconsistent with where the storm was moving. The European band route favors southern New England. This solution will likely result in heavy snowfall along the coast and trickle things down north through the lower Merrimack River Valley. It’s still an option, as the GFS is miles south, over the Atlantic. An approach here would effectively limit snowfall to the islands and Cape Cod only.

Most guidelines show an area of ​​low pressure, the “storm,” that continues to strengthen as it phases with higher level energy. When this phasing occurs is key to maximizing available power. This also means much stronger snowfall in southern New England, and even areas of Long Island Sound.

The odds favor 2-4 inches of snow across Connecticut, Rhode Island, Boston, the South Shore and southward across Cape Cod, with isolated pockets of up to 6 inches.

We know this winter has been bad for snow, and we no longer have time to make up for what we lost. However, all hope is not lost. February is the snowiest month, but April is the time when we usually see the sun set and there are high chances of snow. But it’s New England, and we always keep our snow shovels and plows handy.
