With our active weather pattern continuing, another storm comes as little surprise to New Englanders. Of course, each storm is a bit different in what it offers, and this go round with wet weather will deliver another one to two inches of rain for Southern New England but this time a 12 to 18 inch snowstorm for the mountains of the North! Skiers and snowmobilers will delight in this heavy, pasty snow that will serve as an excellent base, while residents of Southern New England who prefer to “keep it in the mountains” will get your wishes filled, too. After scattered showers during the day, expect steadier and heavier rain to expand from southwest to northeast from 4 PM to 8 PM, respectively, slowing the commute for Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, and delivering steadiest rain around or just after dinner east. While big puddles and rising smaller rivers to minor flood stage are expected for many, an increasing east wind will gust to 50 mph on Cape Cod and the Islands late this evening and overnight, producing some isolated power outages before shifting to blow from the southwest early Tuesday morning as rainfall shuts down. A high tide just after midday and midnight will result in some splashover and perhaps very minor coastal flooding in typically vulnerable spots, while most of the North Country will be in full snowstorm conditions Tuesday morning. Though most dry out Tuesday, the mountains continue to snow. The midweek and late week look drier, but continued cool, with a glancing blow from a storm possible, though not likely, Friday night, then a storm more likely Saturday night into Sunday, likely to contain both rain and snow for New England. Our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast shows the busy weather pattern continues, with another storm possible midweek next week.
