Snow likely early Wednesday in SE MA
By this point in the season Southern New Englanders should be used to a little snow, and that is likely what we’ll get from a storm that brushes by Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The storm was wreaking havoc in the Deep South Tuesday afternoon as it brought accumulating snow from Louisiana to Florida and the Carolinas. Traffic was at a standstill even thought there was only an inch or two on the ground. It’s a testament to how slick untreated roads can get.
The storm will pass well southeast of Nantucket, but come close enough for a light, fluffy snow in the Arctic air that is over Southeastern Massachusetts. Nantucket should pick up the most snow, with gradually lower amounts as you move inland. The Buzzards Bay area will likely see a couple of inches, with 2-4″ possible on Cape Cod. The timing of the storm is from midnight until around 9 am. The morning commute may be affected. While it will likely not be enough snow to cancel school, a delay is possible.
Skies will clear on Wednesday with highs only in the mid 20s. Stay with rightweather.com for the latest on any winter storms heading for Southern New England.
