SLIPPERY AM COMMUTE
Light snow will be falling in northern Worcester County and points north and west of there overnight as a front moves in to New England. Accumulations will be light, but make travel slippery early. Snow will move in from the south during the morning drive as an ocean storm moves closer. That means the commute will be snowy for most, with rain on outer Cape Cod and Nantucket.
Expect a few inches on the front end of the storm on the South Shore before mixing occurs. Interior southern New England will stay all snow. That is where the bigger totals will be measured. Expect about 3" in Boston, 6" in Worcester, and up to 8" in western MA, southern VT, and southwest NH.
The South Shore will have 1-2" near the coast thanks to the mixing. Cape Cod will be 1-2", with mostly rain on the elbow and out to ACK. Interior southeastern MA to Metrowest and north to the Merrimack Valley will be in the 4-6" band.
While not a huge New England storm, the morning timing will mess with schools and getting to work. There are no wind or coastal issues with this storm.
As is typical of these ocean storms, stick with our forecast for any track changes. We will adjust as needed to keep you ready and safe.
