More Rain Than Snow Thursday In Southeastern Massachusetts
A winter storm that will wreak havoc in the Southeastern United States and Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday will arrive in Southern New England on Thursday. This time around, it looks like Southeastern Massachusetts will get a lot more rain than snow as the storm tracks close to Cape Cod.
Snow or mixed precipitation will break out around dawn on Thursday, it may quickly become moderate to heavy, but milder air being brought into the system should lead to a change to rain within 1-3 hours of the precipitation onset. A minor snow accumulation is possible before the change to rain.
Most of Thursday will be wet and windy in coastal SE MA. The wind will gust to 40 mph, and the rain may be heavy at times. The temperature will climb into the mid to upper 30s. Some poor drainage flooding is possible due to ice-clogged storm drains. An inch or more of rain may fall during this storm.
Colder air will wrap in behind the storm Thursday night. A change back to snow is possible before the precipitation ends after midnight. A minor snow accumulation is possible, and there could be a few slick spots Friday morning as the temperature falls into the 20s.
