In a “no rest for the weary” weather pattern another storm will likely brush by Southern New England with more accumulating snow in the middle of this week. The storm has the potential to bring a light to moderate accumulation to Southern New England as it scoots quickly out to sea south of Nantucket. This storm will be nowhere near as intense as the weekend blizzard, but it will add to the snowpack that will be depleted some by above-freezing temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.
The storm will spread snow from the Mid-Atlantic to New England late Wednesday into early Thursday. The timing of the snow in Southern New England is primarily Wednesday night, with the chance of snow lingering through the Wednesday morning commute. The track of the system puts Southern New England, particularly the coast, at risk for a plowable snow. The map below highlights the potential from this storm. If it takes a track a bit farther to the east, it will be a minor 1-2″ event. A track closer to the coast brings the potential for 3-5″ of snow with the highest totals near the coast. There is the outside chance of some 6″ totals based on some of the more extreme projections, but given the speed of the storm, we feel that a 5″ high end is probably best.
