Heavy Snow Headed for the Northeast

9 Mar 2017, 2:33 pm

Travel headaches are ahead for the Northeast as a round of heavy snow will move into the region tonight. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued from Eastern Long Island to Cape Cod, including Boston and Providence.

Snow accumulations of 3″ to 6″ will be common, with areas in the Winter Storm Warning climbing to 8″. Strong winds will create low visibility at times with blowing snow.

The wind had already been strong in New England today with gusts above 60 mph. Although the wind won’t be as strong, it may still peak above 40 mph at times through Friday as the heavy snow falls.

The low pressure center will move out of the Tennessee Valley this evening and into the Mid Atlantic overnight. That will bring the first wave of snow from the Ohio Valley to the Jersey Shore. The snow will stretch into New England Friday morning as the pushes into the Atlantic Ocean. The snow will diminish Friday afternoon as the system heads out to sea and away from the coast.
