Snow continues to pile up in Northern New England where over a foot of heavy, wet snow has meant perfect conditions for building the base in ski and snowmobile country but also has knocked out power to nearly 100,000 customers from Western MA through Northern and Central New England. Though no arctic blast is expected in the coming days, the mountains will see periodic snow continuing all the way through Wednesday, while the rest of New England very slowly finds a drying trend as an increasing southwest wind takes hold for most. Nonetheless, small rivers like the Assabet and Sudbury in Massachusetts have come into flood stage, inundating flood-prone, low-lying areas near the riverbanks. A few days of dry weather – outside of the continuing mountain snow – will take hold through week’s end, when a new approaching storm seems likely to weaken as it moves into New England Friday night, perhaps bringing some very light rain or snow but more likely to cloud the sky through Saturday, in anticipation of the next bona fide storm Saturday night through Sunday, destined to deliver mostly rain. In this active weather pattern, another storm appears likely by midweek next week, and that one may bring both rain and snow to the region in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
