11:15 PM 3/13/17 – Quick Storm Map Update

Decided to quickly update my map to reflect likely sharper gradients and lower totals to the SE.

Uncertainty

There is still some uncertainty about a dry slot. If a dry slot takes place, it would be most likely south and east of a Boston to Providence line, but one could occur elsewhere as well.

The mix line could waffle northwest and southeast a little bit, and thus could dramatically affect snowfall amounts for those outside of the 18-24″ zone. Those in the 18-24″ zone should be safe, along with most in the 12-18″, but beyond there, snowfall is uncertain due to that factor.

Have a good night!

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!
