Video: When the heaviest snowpack arrives
We’ve got a lot. We have a lot of space here. I don’t know, I don’t think there’s any space left. Hey, we should be thankful here. Cindy Fitzgibbon 37 degrees in Needham. that it. This is good. Yes. Big changes since we started talking about this yesterday. Yes. So, yesterday, at this time, we were thinking that much of the area could see up to a foot of snow this morning. We do not believe this storm has moved south, and that it will focus the heaviest snowfall across most of southeastern Massachusetts. Now, we may continue to see some snowfall rates of about an inch per hour from late morning until midday. In this area, that’s no fun on the roads. So, we’ll continue to look at some of the road travel challenges in certain areas as we move through the morning. But all of this will quickly diminish between 2 and 4 p.m., so you can see what’s happening to the south. Here is our storm. You can see some of this energy at work. But if you look at the clouds, see how they’re moving more to the east than to the north, this whole storm is not moving to the north like we thought. So, instead of tracking closer to our area, it stays to the south, putting more snow south of us through parts of New Jersey and New York City and down into Connecticut. Even though we’re getting kind of right now at the northern edge of this, across a lot of southern New England, and then look, see how this is moving away as it’s happening, so we’re still getting those northeasterly winds and they’ll still be strong toward the cape. So there is some concern about coastal flooding. High tide is still coming in, just before 2:00 this afternoon. Now, as the storm passes through this evening, it will draw in cold air. So, it’s going to get colder here as we move from today into tomorrow. The cold is with us until the end of the week. But you can see these winter storm warnings now all the way down into southern Pennsylvania, through northern New Jersey, and all the way into the New York City area. Locally, it has now been reduced to include southeastern Massachusetts. This is where we have the potential for 3 to 6 inches of snow. Once you get close to the pike, the snow will likely only be 1 to 3 inches thick. This includes Worcester and Boston, and you could see access to Buzzards Bay, parts of the South Coast and the Upper Cape, where just over six inches of snow could still be seen, if we get into some of the heavier bands. As if it were snowing now south of Pike. This hasn’t hit the ground yet. Visibility continues for about ten miles. We have a little light snow towards the coastal part of Connecticut, and that’s about it. But things will be full this morning. We are starting to close to freezing in central Massachusetts. But look, from Boston all the way to Cape Town, it’s still in the mid to upper 30s. So, initially, this might start off with a little rain, and then it will start to turn to snow. And you can see it through at about 2:00 this afternoon. There will be some light snow in the Boston area. So here’s your timetable until 8am with light rain near the coast in Cape Town and snow accumulation. We don’t see much of anything north of the 2nd road to South New Hampshire late in the morning, the intensity is starting to increase and you can see that there are some darker blue colors, so there will be instances from late morning until midday as we get to Snowfall rates are about one inch per hour, especially in southeastern Massachusetts. Then look at what happens from 2 to 4 p.m. This is moving from here very quickly. This will be the case during the afternoon. Now the winds are still continuing to pick up this morning. We’re talking about the possibility of wind gusts reaching over 50 mph in some locations. Let’s focus on winds and the threat of coastal flooding. Now with Kelly Anne. Yes, and this will remain one aspect of this storm. It peaks as we travel during the afternoon, so we’re still looking at the potential for some pockets of moderate coastal flooding here, especially as we travel south. Now with more of this heading south of the track, the coastal flood warning has been extended to include most of our coastline, so let’s take a look at the picture as we move south of the city, down towards most of Cape Cod and the islands, you see that most locations are seeing the potential for minor to moderate flooding. . With high tides around 145 to around 230 this afternoon, depending on your specific location. What I want to point out is that Dennis is moving towards the sandwich. These are locations where the northerly windward direction, as we travel toward high tide, we’ll probably see more of that water pooling up a little bit more of a swell issue as we move toward Boston. North Shore areas could see some small pockets of coastal flooding toward places like Rockport. However, there is a greater possibility of more waves. Big waves, and also some waves moving towards locations like SCITUATE. So, we’re going to see the high tide this afternoon astronomically there, and it’s reaching a high level. So that’s really working against us as we track this storm. Of course, we see much more than this. Cindy glanced at some of the cold air on the way. Yes. The cold is coming tonight as we become partly cloudy. We’ll be in the 20s tonight. Tomorrow was a colder day. We’ll get some sunshine back, and temperatures will struggle to get well above the freezing mark tomorrow. When you take the wind into account, this is what it will feel like in the afternoon. As in adolescence. By Thursday morning, the wind chill was in the single digits, so it’s a cold end to the week and I’m keeping an eye on where we go. From Thursday into Friday, it doesn’t look like there’s much of a chance for light snow during the overnight hours that could fall Friday morning, but that’s just a strengthening of the cold, which will be with us throughout next weekend. So we decided to switch to this cooler style, however
