At the time of this writing (12:30 pm), snow has begun across southwestern Connecticut and the leading edge of this snowfall is progressing to the northeast. It is expected that snow will begin across Western Mass by 2 to 3 pm. The snow will then begin across Central Mass by 3 to 4 pm this afternoon. Once the snow begins, it should come down at a fairly quick rate on the order of around one-half of an inch per hour from late this afternoon through this evening before it lightens up in intensity by about midnight tonight. Intermittent light snow is then expected to continue into at least part of the day Wednesday before it finally comes to an end by Wednesday night. Total Snow Accumulations: It still appears that 3 to 4 inches of snow accumulation can be expected. Most of that snow is expected to accumulate between late afternoon today and midnight tonight. Road conditions are likely to be slippery during the last half of this afternoon through a majority of tonight. So, use care when traveling later this afternoon and tonight. The Next Chance For Snow looks to be on Sunday night and Monday as an area of low pressure takes shape to the south of Long Island and heads for the Cape and then towards Nova Scotia. The track of this storm will be crucial in determining how much snow accumulates across the region. Some of the weather forecast guidance are showing a moderate snowfall on the order of 3 to 6 inches. Other weather forecast guidance are showing quite the large snowstorm with a foot or more possible, especially across Central Mass. At this point, I’m leaning more towards the moderate type snowfall accumulations, but I’m not at all ruling out a much heavier snowfall. So, as I already mentioned snow looks quite likely across Western and Central Mass throughout Sunday night and Monday with the snow ending late Monday afternoon or Monday evening. Overall, my thinking is for a 3 to 6 inch snowfall across the region with perhaps up to 8 inches possible across Central Mass. Again, this is a early call and the forecast of this snowfall is very likely to undergo changes in the coming days, so stay tuned.
