Subject: Update on Wintry Weather Potential Early Fri - Sat
We continue to monitor for accumulating snow Friday which then looks to transition to a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain especially along and north of the Mass Pike Friday night into early Saturday.
It is looking more likely that precipitation may begin as an initial period of snow late Thursday night into Friday morning. This will change to rain and a wintry mix from south to north through the day on Friday. Cooling temperatures Friday evening will then bring the more significant potential for snow and ice Friday night. Timing remains uncertain with this update. We will include a first cut at snow totals through Saturday morning, but these are likely to change some as we approach.
What: Accumulating Snow/Sleet Possible. Low risk for a bit of freezing rain across highest terrain.
· Accumulating snow/sleet possible early Friday morning into Friday night.
· Precipitation is most likely to remain snow all day Friday in the high terrain and northern portions of Massachusetts.
· Uncertain if snow will accumulate on roadways outside the high terrain.
When and Where: Friday and Friday night with a focus on the high terrain north of MA Turnpike.
· Snow may develop across most of the region early Friday morning.
· The Friday AM rush hour may be impacted.
· Snow may change to sleet and rain across much of the region through the day on Friday, and into Friday night.
· Bulk of precipitation should come to an end Sat morning.
