Update On Tonight & Sunday's Snowfall

The snow is still coming and it's expected to come down quite heavily after midnight tonight.

Snow is now spreading across southern and central Pennsylvania at the time of this writing and it's expected to begin snowing first across the Berkshires by about 6-7 pm and then across the Pioneer Valley of Western Mass between 7 and 8 pm this evening. Snow will then overspread Central Mass between 8 and 9 pm this evening.

While it will snow lightly at first, it is expected that the snow will become heavy in intensity by about midnight tonight. This heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are then expected throughout the after midnight hours of tonight.

Please be aware that poor travel conditions are expected between midnight tonight and sunrise Sunday morning due to the expectation of heavy snow.

The snow will lighten up dramatically in intensity by sunrise Sunday morning with very light snow expected during Sunday morning.

A second round of light to moderate snow is then expected during Sunday afternoon.

All snow will come to an end during the late afternoon and early evening hours of Sunday.

Temperatures tonight will be around 30 Degrees. Temperatures during Sunday will be between 30 and 35 Degrees.

Winds throughout tonight and Sunday will be East to Northeast at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

Heavy Rain Looks Very Likely During Tuesday Night & Wednesday: A strong low pressure system is expected to track across New England during Tuesday night and Wednesday bringing with it heavy rain with the potential for about 2 inches of rain accumulation. The combination of snowmelt and the heavy rain is likely to lead to flood issues across the area.

Precipitation is expected to start out as snow around 6-8 pm Tuesday evening and accumulate about 1 to 2 inches before it changes to rain by about 10-11 pm Tuesday night.

Rain, which will fall at a heavy intensity at times, is then expected throughout the remaining parts of Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Rain then lightens up in intensity by late Wednesday morning with periods of light rain continuing through Wednesday afternoon.

Rain ends during Wednesday evening.

Around 2 inches of total rainfall can be expected during Tuesday night and Wednesday. This heavy amount of rain combined with a melting snow pack and a very saturated ground is quite worrisome in terms of flood issues.

I would definitely plan on substantial amounts of ponding on roads, as well as flooding of underpasses and areas of poor drainage. Stream and river flooding is also something that’s a serious concern as substantial rises in the area rivers and streams are likely.

In addition to all of this, it looks windy throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with southeast winds gusting up to 40-45 mph at times.
