Roads may become slippery late. "Snow may be the main weather issue". Areas further northwest of the coast may get as much as 14 inches.
Keep all of that in mind over the next seven to 10 days as two potential storms, including one tomorrow, will bring more snow. "The heaviest snow (and toughest travel) will be Wednesday night and first thing Thursday morning with snowfall rates at 1-2"/hr at times.
Meteorologist Walter Drag said this storm will have less wind, "which is a good thing", but then noted that the snow will be wet and heavy, which could lead to more downed trees, branches and power lines.
The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Quinn. With highs around 45 to 50 degrees, it hardly felt like a significant and plowable snow is on our doorstep.
When the precipitation is lighter, it is more likely to be rain, or a mixture.
Plan on hard travel conditions, including during the evening commute on Wednesday.
We're starting off the week with clouds and sun with temperatures in the mid-40s, but conditions will deteriorate on Tuesday night. The weather service's recent snowfall map for instance shows zero snow accumulation for New Bedford, 6 inches in Providence, 10 inches in Foxboro and 18 inches in Worcester. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in Westchester, Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess counties after last week's storm. This time, winds will blow briskly from the northeast, sustained up to 20 miles-per-hour and gusting at times to 30 to 40 miles-per-hour.
Scattered power outages are possible from wind and heavy, wet snow.
No travel advisories are posted on many highways across South Dakota and North Dakota as roadways are snow-packed and icy.
The computer models on Monday pointed to 12-18 inches of snow for the southern third of Sussex County and south and west into Warren and Hunterdon counties as well as Monroe and Northhampton counties in Pennsylvania. Farther west from there, amounts will diminish, perhaps rather sharply.
Heavy snow is expected, with possible accumulations of 6 to 12 inches or perhaps even higher.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the North Shore of Nassau County, where the worst of the storm is expected to hit. He noted that there is a slight chance of snow Tuesday night and early Wednesday, as well as some additional snow as the storm winds down on Thrusday. That meeting has already been rescheduled to Thursday, March 8.
Saturday: Partly sunny. Pleasant.
The snow will be a boost for some, Basu said.
