Winter Storm Watch Issued in New England

27 Dec 2016, 4:31 pm

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for most of New England for Thursday and Friday. A coastal storm will move through the Atlantic Ocean at the end of the week and is expected to bring significant snows to the region.Totals could be well over a foot, especially in the higher elevations. With cold air and moisture moving across the Great Lakes, Lake Effect Snow Watches have been issued in New York.

On Thursday, a cold front will move across the region from the Plains, bringing in the first round of snow. The snowfall will move across New York and Pennsylvania in the morning and into New England by evening.

An intensifying low pressure center in the Atlantic Ocean will move northward Thursday night into Friday night. The system will be moving quickly, so the snow will be coming down hard and fast into Friday midday. By the weekend, the storm will be well north of the area and the snow will come to an end.
