Dangerous Mess Today – Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain

Good morning!

Snow has entered southern New England and is now working its way into Maine. Large parts of SNE as of 5 AM are already over to sleet. Sleet will take over for snow in a large part of New England, perhaps all the way to central and parts of northern New Hampshire. The SNE coast will gradually (quickly for a few) change to rain while inland, as well as into southern parts of Northern New England, a change to freezing rain is likely – a fairly significant ice event isn’t out of the cards in western MA. Far northern New England should stay all snow, and meanwhile, the NH/ME coast will see a mixed bag.

The worst of this event is ongoing and will continue through midday.

My current snow forecast:

Ice:

High temperatures will range through the teens and 20s (scattered coastal low 30s) in Maine; 20s to mid 30s in NH, upper 20s to upper 30s in VT, low 30s to mid 40s in MA, and upper 30s and 40s in CT/RI. I might have another update later this morning. Enjoy your Tuesday and TRY TO AVOID DRIVING as it is a total mess! If you must travel, take it slow!!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
