12.28.13 Latest Storm Thoughts

Accumulating snow still on the way for some Sunday night.
A few days ago it looked like this weekend's storm would track just southeast of Cape Cod, bringing mostly snow the region. Over the past few days, however, the track has shifted a little farther west. That means we'll have some mixing involved with this one.

Temperatures on Sunday will be similar to Saturday, in the 30s to low 40s. Rain will move in from south to north during the late afternoon (mostly after 3 PM). As that continues to push northward, we'll see some mixing with, and eventually a change to, heavy wet snow. Some of that snow will fall heavily at times in Eastern Vermont and New Hampshire late Sunday night and during the pre-dawn hours of Monday morning. The transition to snow will be last to occur in the Champlain Valley overnight, meaning that's where the lowest snowfall totals will be found.

The storm's a quick mover, so by Monday morning it's out of our hair. We'll still have some lingering snow showers around though. Some partial sun will poke out during the afternoon as cold air rushes in (temperatures will fall from the 20s in the morning to teens by afternoon.)

Where the snow is heaviest, and temperatures coldest (east of the Greens in parts of the Upper Valley, Eastern Vermont, and New Hampshire), expect 3-6" overnight Sunday. Lesser amounts of 1-3" can be expected where the switch to snow is slower (in far Southern Vermont and areas west of the Greens). Northern New York will also see 1-3", since the snow will be lighter there. Around the Champlain Valley just a dusting-2" is expected.
