Déjà vu!

While everyone is likely focusing on the fresh start of a brand new year, it is looking like Mother Nature is reflecting extra carefully on 2014. Remember that rainy Christmas Day most of New England experienced just one short week ago? Models are indicating the formation of an area of low pressure that will likely affect us during the second half of the weekend. Right now, it’s looking like the center of the low will once again be positioned over the Great Lakes, putting much of New England in the warm sector of the storm. But with a strong Canadian high in place prior to the arrival of this low, models are showing that temperatures may be cold enough for snow, with a transition to freezing rain possible when the associated warm front lifts north and causes temperatures to rise during the day on Sunday. As the low continues to track northeast, a cold front is expected to swing through Sunday evening into early Monday morning, lowering temperatures once again and allowing any remaining precipitation to fall as snow. Below are graphical forecasts for what to expect this weekend, courtesy of the National Weather Service.

 
 

Precip type Saturday 7PM

Light snow is expected to begin late Saturday afternoon
 
 

Precip type Sunday 1AM

Snowfall is expected to pick up in intensity Saturday night into Sunday morning
 
 

Precip type Sunday 1PM

Snow will transition to freezing rain Sunday afternoon
 
 

Precip type Monday 1AM

A transition back to light snow expected Sunday evening into early Monday morning before all precipitation finally tapers off
 
Until then, a few intermittent snow showers will continue on the higher summits before high pressure builds Friday bringing cold, but fair conditions for the beginning of the weekend. Be sure to check back frequently for the latest updates on this weekend’s winter weather event!
