A quick-moving low is forecast to race across the area and dump several inches of snow in a relatively short amount of time on Thursday.
Total snow accumulations of 8-12 inches and locally higher amounts in areas where some of the heavier snow-bands move through.
Low pressure will move in from the west-southwest overnight Wednesday night and early Thursday morning and quickly move through the area during the AM and early afternoon. The low will intensify off the coast at which point it may still be close enough to our area for a period of heavy snow before it completely moves out tomorrow afternoon.
Timing: Temperatures falling overnight to the lower 30’s; Snow will begin falling between 4-5 am and will become heavy at times during day break. Heavy snow will continue during the morning hours and early afternoon before tapering and ending later in the afternoon. Temperature will be dropping through the 20’s NE winds will be backing to the NW and could gust to 20-25 MPH…some blowing and drifting of snow is possible especially near the shore where stronger winds are expected along with the possibility of scattered power outages. Temperatures dropping into the teens and signal digits tomorrow night with some blowing snow and wind chills near zero or below.
