Another round of snow is expected across Western and Central Mass beginning on Thursday evening with the snow continuing through Thursday night and Friday. An area of low pressure now taking shape over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico is expected to reach the Mid-Atlantic coast by Thursday morning. From there, this low pressure system is forecast to pass to the south of Nantucket during the day on Friday. It now appears that the track of this low pressure system will be further south than previously thought. This means that slightly less snowfall amounts are now expected across the entire area. Snow is expected to begin across areas along and south of the Mass Pike by 4 to 5 pm Thursday afternoon with the snow is expected to begin across areas north of the Mass Pike between 6 pm and 9 pm Thursday evening. Snow is then expected to continue through Thursday night and much of the day on Friday. With the further south track, it now appears that the intensity of the snow will be light throughout the entire storm. The snow is expected to gradually come to an end during Friday evening. My latest snowfall forecast map is attached to this post.
This Weekend Looks good with no weather problems expected. Saturday looks partly sunny and windy with high temperatures near 30 Degrees. Sunday also looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 30 and 35 Degrees. The Next Chance For Snow Is on Monday and Monday night as a fast moving low pressure system crosses Southern New England. This storm could bring a round of light snow that will be mixed with light rain at times. High temperatures Monday will be between 35 and 40 Degrees.
