2/5/20 PM Update

Good afternoon! Quick update regarding the impending storm for tomorrow; but first, expect a low near 24 tonight, giving way to a high near 36 tomorrow, a low of 34 tomorrow night, and a high around 39 Friday. Overall, expect a cold, raw end to the workweek.

Precipitation will start in the hours before sunrise as snow, with a coating to 3″ expected for most locations (including Dracut) before a switch to a mix with sleet and freezing rain shortly after sunrise. The combination of snow and ice will make for a very hazardous morning commute; the freezing rain will switch to normal rain by around noontime or so. Freezing rain amounts should be between a glaze and a tenth of an inch of ice. As a result, I expect most area schools to have a delayed opening tomorrow; if the freezing rain continues into the later morning hours as is possible, a few school closings aren’t out of the question. Either way, I don’t expect any administrators to announce delays or closings until the morning.

Rain showers will then continue through Thursday evening, with a steady and at times heavy rainfall likely Thursday night into Friday. Rain showers are then possible into Friday evening, when some snow may mix in with the rain; a light snow accumulation cannot be ruled out Saturday morning. If that chance materializes I’ll have more tomorrow or Friday.

Have a great day!

1/18/20 AM Update

Good morning! Here’s the latest on this evening’s storm.

Timing: starting after sunset today and likely after 7 pm. Heaviest snowfall late this evening and into the overnight hours, wrapping up around sunrise tomorrow.

Amounts: widespread 4-8″ for much of the region, with most places including Dracut probably being right in the middle of the range. Higher amounts closer to 7″ or 8″ will likely be confined to higher elevations, with the amounts closer to 4″ likely in southern and far eastern sections of the zone. Lesser amounts of 2-4″ are expected from Boston and other coastal regions to the south, where rain or ice may mix in at the end of the storm.

Have a great day!
