The last full week of the season will provide several chances of snow, including the main event Wednesday to Thursday. This will be a widespread snow, including all of interior New England.
A storm system coming aboard the Continental U.S. Monday morning near Seattle will then move southeast toward the Plains Tuesday and by New England Wednesday and Thursday. The center of the storm will pass to our south, leaving our area on the colder and snowier side of the storm system. Snow will begin mid-morning Wednesday, will be heaviest Wednesday night, then end Thursday morning to midday. Total snow accumulations will add up to six inches or more for many areas. There is a chance towns/cities will get a foot of snow, even the chance of more than a foot in the central and southern mountains of each state. Winds will be gusty from the north at 10-20 mph and up to 35 mph within the stronger gusts. It will start as a wetter snow with temperatures around 30 degrees Wednesday, but then trend to a drier snow as temperatures fall into the 10s Wednesday night and stay there Thursday! Thursday is looking like it will be a very cold day with wind chill values around 0 degrees if not below 0. The worst of the driving and traveling will be Wednesday evening through Thursday morning.
