The storm that impacted us Tuesday with over a foot of snow in the higher elevations and almost 2 inches of rain in Arlington, Massachusetts continues to slowly move out Wednesday morning.
We will still be seeing snow showers falling over the mountains of Northern New England. Additional snow totals will range between 1-to-4-inches.
The wind out of the northwest will gust near 25 mph on Wednesday, bringing a slight chance for flurries during the afternoon to sections of Central Massachusetts and Western Connecticut. The area of low pressure will be exiting the region Wednesday evening and that’s when we will begin to see conditions improve for all.
A few days of dry weather – outside of the continuing mountain snow – will take hold through the week’s end, when a new approaching storm seems likely to weaken as it moves into New England Friday night. It may perhaps bring some very light rain or snow.
Most of our Saturday will be dry but more rain is on the way Saturday night into Sunday as a new storm approaches from the west. Our pattern looks to stay active next week, with another storm possible Tuesday into Wednesday, which appears to bring a mix of rain and snow.
After all the rain we have seen this month, small rivers like the Assabet and Sudbury in Massachusetts and the Pawtuxet in Rhode Island have come into flood stage, inundating flood-prone, low-lying areas near the riverbanks.
It has certainly been a rainy November in Boston with over nine inches reported at the airport, which is almost six inches above normal, and the trend looks to continue as we start December.
