1-16-2018 – Storm Update #2

Good evening!

Quick update here… The timing of the storm is unchanged, with light snow possible this evening, then the main event starting around midnight. The worst of the storm will be between 5 AM and Noon, with the heaviest snow intensity and a very treacherous travel situation, especially north and west of I-95/128 (including Dracut). Snow will wind down in the afternoon and early evening. These impacts remain unchanged in the Dracut area compared to this morning’s forecast.

I am now forecasting a widespread 4-8″ of snow for western, central and interior northeast MA, much of NH, VT, and northwest CT. That zone includes Dracut, where I think we will land right around 6 inches. The snow will be fairly fluffy in most of the zone, with a somewhat wetter snow inside of I-495 and a not-as-fluffy snow (but not super wet) just outside of 495. Inside of I-95, expect a heavy, wet 2-4″ snow, with some rain mixed in at times. Further south, 0-2″ is likely with more rain mixed in.
