No joke – winter weather not over yet

By James Arnold, Weather Specialist

Our next storm seems to be right on schedule, and precipitation should begin in earnest by early to mid afternoon.  Likely beginning as a mix of rain and snow, it should trend toward snow toward evening and continue through the night and end later Saturday morning.  I am still looking for about 4 to 7 inches in and around Shrewsbury, with greater amounts to our north and west where snow and sleet totals could reach a foot or more near and north of the Route 2 corridor.  Click here for the NWS latest thinking on this situation.  Note the potential for power outages as the heavy, wet snow will likely cause considerable tree damage which will bring wires and possibly poles down as well, particularly where snow depths are higher.

And just so our lovers of winter weather don’t think it is all over when this storm ends, it looks like additional storms will impact our area next Tuesday and about Thursday as well.  They also have the potential to bring a dose of wintry precipitation to our area.
