Sometime today, Friday, rain should start to fall. The rain will become snow. The snow will continue all weekend. Should be a good weekend to curl up by the fire. Compared to the big storm hitting New England, our storm will be minor. By the end of it, we could have 6 inches. Where Boston will see 2-3 inches per hour, we will see 2-3 inches per day as our top snowfall rate. Locally, it can always be heavier.
Then, we go back into the deep freeze with single digit temperatures for lows. I had hoped for a warmer February. The sunny warmth has been a pleasure the lease week or so.
Just a note, one of the high-resolution models is calling for over an inch of water precipitation in the next 48 hours. I doubt it, but that would make things more interesting.
