10 AM, 3/14/17 Storm Update

Good morning!

Most of what I said for timing, etc. yesterday holds, and the forecast is mostly on track. The exception to the rule would be precipitation type; it now appears that some sleet or possibly even a little freezing rain will get well inland for a time during the mid evening hours. However, this should not significantly cut back on snow totals for most, as most of the precip will be snow. The only place that will see issues locally with cut back on totals is the coast, but even then it’s nowhere near as much as the Boston area, RI, southeast MA, southern CT, etc. will be impacted by the mix line.

Most spots in the 17-24″ will see the lower half of that range with higher totals possible in spots.

Travel will still be extremely dangerous to life-threatening for the rest of the day, so stay off the roads. High winds are still likely to cause power outages. None of that has changed.

Have a good one and stay safe!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in 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 on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
