A nor'easter that pummeled New England with snow, rain and wind overnight is slowly moving north Thursday morning, with bands of snow expected into the afternoon.
Low pressure south of us is strengthened and moved north with thunderstorms crossing parts of New England last night, as snow and thunder, snowfall rates exceeded 2 inches per hour.
Now that storm has maxed out in intensity near the Maine coast and is slowly dissipating. But upper level energy will continue to swirl with bands of snow or rain possible right through today and into tomorrow. There will be breaks of sun and breeze for southern New England today, a few snow or rain showers, highs near 40.
Snowfall accumulations are in the double digits for most of the higher elevations away from the shore, with some of the mountains from western Massachusetts through southern Vermont, much of New Hampshire, and much of Maine will exceed 15 inches. Boston has seen about 5 inches so far, while parts of Worcester County have seen nearly a foot and a half of snowfall.
Instability clouds mixed with sunshine are in the forecast for the weekend with the chilly air mass, high temperature in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
Another system will tap the Gulf of Mexico, along with new cold air from Canada, with possibly our third nor'easter in two weeks, to start off our work week next Monday and Tuesday.
Way too early for details on that one, as we can only take them one at a time right now.
