Low pressure is moving from New York through central New England on Tuesday morning. When storms take this track, southern New England ends up on the warm side of the equation, and any frozen precipitation is limited.
However, cold air has drained down from northern New England, causing some icy travel across parts of interior Massachusetts this morning. If you are traveling across northern Massachusetts, or in the northern New England, be aware of hazardous road conditions.
On Tuesday afternoon, warmer air will continue to flow in off the ocean, and we will have several opportunities for passing showers and even the rumble of thunder. This will create a slushy mess with the snow that’s already on the ground. If you didn’t have a chance to clean up from the storm this past weekend, this is probably your last opportunity to move this stuff until sometime late in the weekend or next week.
Morning snow changes to rain as warmer air moves in from the ocean.
On Tuesday night, we’ll start to experience the coldest air of the season so far. Temperatures will not break freezing from later this evening until sometime on Saturday.
If you are wondering about the next storm system that will drive out of Canada and head for the coastline, it should stay to our south and prevent us from seeing a snowstorm late this week or early this weekend.
The pattern is active and cold, and there will be additional chances of storminess through the rest of the month, but it’s too early to forecast the impact on New England weather.
