Cool Friday; Snowy Saturday

Good morning!
 
With partly cloudy skies today, expect a high around 39, with a west wind around 5 mph. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a low around 23 and a calm wind.
 
Tomorrow, we see our first real accumulation of snowfall (a very light non-measurable snow accumulated onto some surfaces and was windswept around on November 20). The high will be around 33 and tomorrow night will get down to around 28 late.

There is a chance of some snow in the morning (hence the Winter Weather Advisory starts at 4 AM tomorrow – going until 7 AM Saturday, although the timing is blanketed across the entire area), but the bulk of the snow will be from midday tomorrow into late Saturday night. I am thinking we will see 5-7″ of snowfall with this storm, but a slight shift could give us more or less snow. Higher snowfall could also occur with heavier than expected banding. I would expect some tweaks to the snowfall forecast over the next 24 hours; stay tuned. Either way, expect some travel impacts as it is the first accumulating snowfall. Further to our south and along the immediate coast, a rain/snow line will make things tricky, but we will be in the clear for all snow with this one.

A few additional snow showers are possible on Sunday morning before a partly sunny Sunday and mostly sunny Monday in the 30s. There is a pretty good chance of another storm for Tuesday into Tuesday night, but it is a little too far out for details except that it would likely be in the form of snow. Beyond that, the second half of next week is looking very cold with highs barely breaking 20 at times.

Have a great day! I will try to get an update out later today, but there will definitely be one by tomorrow morning.

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!
