STORM UPDATE from MEMA (3/21, 7:30PM)
Despite this storm occurring less than 24 hours away, there is still some uncertainty, especially with the snowfall forecast. Marginal temperatures and dry air intruding into the region may lower snowfall amounts.
Snow will begin early Wednesday and will be heaviest early Wednesday evening before tapering off Thursday morning. The heavy snowfall axis will line up somewhere across southern CT, into RI and southeast MA. There is the potenti...al for snowfall rates near 1 to possibly 2 inches an hour after sunset lasting into the overnight hours. Snow consistency will be on the wetter side, so there is the potential for some isolated power outages, however it will probably not be to the extent that we have seen with our past storms. 6-8 inches for Boston into southeastern MA, with pockets of 8-12 inches in northern Bristol and southern Norfolk county; and 1-4 inches on the Cape and Islands.
Northeast to north winds may gust to 45-55 mph along the immediate MA coast, and 55-60 mph on the Cape and Islands. Winds may gust to 25-35 mph farther inland across the remainder of the region.
Overall expect widespread minor coastal flooding with pockets of moderate flooding for the early Thursday morning high tide (between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.)
MEMA UPDATE (3/20, 4:30PM)
Slight change in snow forecast from this morning.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is increasingly confident that the Commonwealth will be impacted by a nor’easter beginning Wednesday morning through Thursday morning. This storm is expected to bring snow across the state, with heaviest snowfall amounts in southeastern MA. Light snow will start from south to north late Wednesday afternoon, but the heaviest snow will occur Wednesday night, possibly ...by the end of the evening commute. Snow will taper off Thursday morning. Additionally, coastal MA, the Cape and Islands will experience strong winds. Minor to moderate coastal flooding with areas of moderate to severe erosion is expected for the southeast MA coastline during the early Thursday AM high tide.
1-4 inches for western MA; 4-6 inches for central MA with 6-8 inches possible for southern Worcester County; 6-8 inches for eastern and northeastern MA; 6-12 inches in southeastern MA, with amounts closer to 8-12 inches near the coast; and 1-6 inches on the Cape and Vineyard (lower amounts expected in the eastern portions of these regions where there may be a rain/snow mix).
Northeast to north winds may gust to 45-55 mph along the immediate MA coast. Winds may gust to 25-35 mph farther inland across the remainder of the region. Peak Winds will occur Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
