Partly Cloudy Monday; Messy Mix Tuesday

Good morning!

For today expect highs in the upper 20s to mid 30s, along with partly cloudy skies and west winds at 5-15 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph possible.

Let’s get into what to expect with tomorrow’s storm:

Precipitation Types

Snow, sleet, freezing rain, rain.

Timing

Precipitation enters the region as snow tomorrow morning (except in far southern New England). While the coast will be changed to rain by late morning, areas in northern MA and points further north will not change over until around the evening. Mixed precip spreads north during the late morning into early-mid afternoon, crawling north primarily as sleet and then rain then makes its way north. Freezing rain is possible in spots of northern and western MA tomorrow evening and early overnight. Precipitation then exits during the overnight hours with lingering showers (mainly rain) possible tomorrow morning.

Impact

Both commutes on Tuesday (especially the evening commute) will be messy, with hazardous and slow travel throughout the day. It’s very possible – almost likely, even – that schools in northern MA and points north see either an early release or a day off from school, with the timing not exactly helping. Still a bit of uncertainty on the morning commute, but the evening commute is definitely looking iffy.

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!
