As New England reels from a disasterous AFC championchip game, us snow lovers can look forward to the snow potential for Tuesday. There is an upper level disturbance currently over the midwest moving to the east that will develop a low pressure area off of Cape Cod. This disturbance will move to the northeast while deepening. There will be an inverted or Norlon trough that will likely set up along the I95 corridor from Brunswick ME to Boston MA. Along this trough axis is where totals of 3-6″ are possible. Amounts of 4-8″ cannot be ruled out.
I am not a very good lake effect snow forecaster but included those totals as well because southern NY will be effected by the coastal system.
Winds will become potentially gusty out of the NE/N/NW depending on your location.
More snow possible for Friday.
