A very quiet January takes a snowy turn at the end of the month. It’s not a big storm, but a fresh blanket of white is likely in all of Southern New England from Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. Most spots should get 2-3″ of snow with a bit more/less possible in a few spots. The steadiest snow is likely Tuesday evening, with lighter snow lingering into early Wednesday.
The storm starts midday in Connecticut and late in the afternoon in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. The steadiest snow is in the evening, before winding down to very light snow and flurries Wednesday morning.
The pattern supports snow showers and flurries on Thursday as another storm moves offshore well south of New England. The enhanced northeast flow should bring in some moisture off the New England coast. The best chance of an additional inch or two of snow is in eastern Massachusetts.
It looks very cold Friday into the weekend. Wind chills may be below zero Friday and/or Saturday, with temps in the teens and 20s at best. Lows may reach the single digits for the first time this winter.
Dry weather continues through Sunday before another storm heads for the Northeast early next week. It’s a week away, but there’s a good chance for some combination of snow/mix/rain next Monday into Tuesday. As expected, the weather pattern is getting active in the Northeast as we head into February. Still a lot of winter left…
