Southern New England gets second day of snow, sleet, rain

Posted April 02, 2017

Snow in April. How dare Mother Nature bring us such nonsense! Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Hopefully, the series of storms over the next 7 days and beyond will put a big dent in the drought.

Snow will also make an appearance in much of Wyoming, the Wasatch Range in Utah and in northern Arizona, including Flagstaff. I feel as though the most likely accumulation will remain 6,000 feet and higher.

"You may look out your window and go, 'where's the snow?' It's changing as we speak", said National Weather Service meteorologist Kim Buttrick, noting that several cities and towns west of Boston, including Worcester, were seeing snow just after 9 a.m. Those areas could see up to a foot of snow, the service said, warning that travel will be risky Saturday.

While I am confident in a nor'easter hitting the region Friday, the exact temperature profile of the atmosphere in your location will determine what falls from the sky.

For drivers south of Boston, rain and flooding was the major concern; further north, it was snow and sleet, Buttrick said.

Snow and sleet will continue to accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces during the day on Saturday with some roads turning slippery and slushy. I don't expect any travel issues due to the weather until after sunset Friday to the first part of Saturday.

Thursday Night: Increasing clouds, but dry.

Colorado Springs has a 90 percent chance of snow and areas of freezing fog Friday night into Saturday morning, according to the weather service. Rain near the coast, snow well inland.

The high will be around 42 during the day and the overnight low will be near 29.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, pleasant.

Monday: Sunshine with highs in the 50s. Highs Tuesday will be in the 40s at best, thanks to this wind's drawing in colder air off the ocean.
