WINTER STORM WATCH FOR LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY...
The next big storm arrives late Tuesday night, first in the form of snow (1 to 3 inches possible overnight), and then a mixed bag of wintry precipitation is expected for much of the day Wednesday, with a possible changeover back to snow before the storm winds down Wednesday evening. If precipitation type were not an issue, the storm would produce at least 6 inches of snow across all of SNE, but due to uncertainty of the precipitation type, there will likely be some fine-tuning of the snow forecast over the next 24 hours. The current snow forecast calls for 3 to 6 inches from Providence to the south and east (1 to 3" on the immediate coast), with 6 to 10 inches for areas north and west of the capital city. Suffice it to say, this upcoming mid-week storm has the potential to be a travel headache for all of SNE. There is a WINTER STORM WATCH for most of SNE from late Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon.
Expect cool/dry conditions Thursday through Saturday, with highs in the lower 30s and lows in the teens.
Another storm could move into the area by the end of the upcoming weekend, which could produce accumulating snow into early next week. Please send hate mail to Punxsutawney Phil, Punxsutawney, PA.
