Winter storm watch in effect through Friday afternoon
Feb 17 2021
Be mindful for black ice in the morning commute as Tuesday's melt is now frozen with the temperature at 21 degrees before dawn.
Gregorio says the storm will arrive tomorrow morning, and is expected to impact travel around the state. The latest forecast models are in and it looks like nearly all of us will be seeing some type of winter weather by early afternoon, before that freezing line splits our SE counties to a cold all rain event to a winter wx event in our NW counties early evening.
The storm, though, will still be far from over - with precipitation not winding down until sometime between 9 a.m. and noon Friday and lingering light rain or snow showers possible through the afternoon.
The National Weather Service in Huntsville said up to 2-3 inches of snow and sleet and up to a tenth of an inch of the dreaded ice will be possible starting later this afternoon, mainly for northwest Alabama.
A wintry mix - including snow, sleet and freezing rain - fell Tuesday across central ME, as a midwinter storm created messy travel conditions in much of the state.
Much of the guidance points to snowfall amounts of six to eight inches across the area, falling over a 24- to 36-hour period, according to the weather service.
Boston, Worcester and Springfield may see 4 to 6 inches of snow Thursday through Friday, while the eastern slopes of the Berkshires and pockets just south of North Adams and west of Great Barrington are forecast to receive 6 to 8 inches. Northeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour.
We'll have yet another hard freeze on Friday morning with low in the low 20s. Cloudy. Highs in the upper 20s. "We're going to have another one coming late Thursday and into Thursday night".
