When will the snow stop in Massachusetts? – NBC Boston
Snow and winter continue to roll into what makes up the lion’s share of our accumulation from this storm. Already to the south, the transition line heads north, and as temperatures begin to drop, we will see refreeze and freezing conditions in some areas.
How much snow will we get in Massachusetts?
Quantities will be less in southeastern Massachusetts, the Cape and the Islands. Elsewhere, we’ll see the blend gradually working towards mid-morning at the latest. The easterly wind along the coast will also bring “softer” air at the same time. This means that the snow on the ground will become wetter and heavier and the roads will become a little a little better at noon.
When will the heaviest snowfall arrive?
Here’s a look at the timing of the storm and the areas that will be hardest hit:
When will the snow stop?
Sleet will break out in the early afternoon. As the storm begins to move away Friday afternoon, colder air will return from northern New England. This will cause temperatures to drop at the end of the day and any points above the freezing point will be subject to refreezing. This will create new slippery spots on untreated surfaces, and because of this, evening driving will be difficult (better than morning driving, but still not ideal).
Friday: Snow, heavy in the morning, mixing with sleet and rain from the south. Many cities see more than half a foot. Highs in the 30s, 20s in the north. Tonight: the cold air returns, the flash frost with depressions among teenagers. Saturday: Rather sunny, cold sky. Maximum around freezing point. Sunday: sunny skies, gusty southwesterly winds. Highs in the upper 30s.
More snow Friday night?
The return of colder air (in all levels of the atmosphere) also means a return to snow for all locations this evening. There might be an extra 1-2 inches just with “leftovers” tonight. The snow is expected to slowly diminish as the night progresses, likely not ending in Cape Town until 10:00 or 11:00 p.m.
A cold start to the weekend is expected. We will barely be able to freeze in most places. Sunday presents a bit of moderation, with more cold returning Monday.
We’re here to guide you through the storm. Stay safe and enjoy the sun this weekend.
We have a first alert for Friday due to heavy snowfall across much of New England. No damaging winds, no coastal flooding, just heavy snow that will make getting around difficult, especially in the morning. Here’s what you need to know.
