    Evening Commute to Be Affected by Snow Showers

    Today (Tuesday) - Midday and afternoon heavy snow, highs near 30. Overnight Tuesday Night - Snow and mix to coastal and southeast rain. Temperatures rise into the 30s. Wednesday - Predawn mixed showers depart for breaks of sun between clouds. Highs in the 40s. (Published Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019)

    You won’t have any problems getting into work or school Tuesday morning, despite the expected snow showers.

    Clouds will increase and thicken throughout the morning. Snow will develop from southwest to northeast throughout the late morning and early afternoon. The intensity of the snow will increase quickly and the heaviest snow looks to fall during this evenings commute.

    Between 3 to 6 p.m., we will have 1-inch per hour snowfall rates over the entire length of the Mass Pike and most of Interstates 89, 93, 95 and 128. Pack your patience, it will be an ugly ride home. If you can leave school or work a little early, we’d recommend doing so.

    This evening and through the night, snow will change to a wintry mix and eventually rain as temperatures climb from the 30s into the 40s. Northern New England may stay all snow and that’s where we are expecting 12-to-18-inches of snow.

    Six to nine inches is likely in the Merrimack Valley, southern New Hampshire and Vermont. Three to six inches is anticipated for much of the Commonwealth away from the coast. Amounts will drop to 1-to-3-inches for southern New England.

    Tomorrow will start off with rain or a wintry mix. Most of the precipitation will exit by the afternoon. Temperatures will start off mild and fall slightly during the afternoon. Thankfully, there won’t be a significant amount of cold behind this system.

    Thursday is seasonable and quiet. Friday looks warmer with some rain. Once that system moves through, a more wintery pattern will take shape. Temperatures will be in the 30s during the day and teens and 20s at night. At this point, the extended period looks void of any significant storms.
