So here we are the night before the storm and the picture is finally becoming clearer. Confidence is growing that significant snow will be widespread over the region. Snow will overspread the region tonight arriving after midnight accumulating several inches by sunrise. The first burst of snow will drop several inches through the morning causing slick roads. Through midday, the snow will lighten up and will likely accumulate to only an inch or so. As the coastal low starts to crank just offshore, heavy bands of snow will start to overspread the region later in the day tuesday into tuesday night. This will be the main event dropping most of the snow we recieve. This snow will let up in the wee hours of the morning wednesday but the winds will continue to howl out of the north west.
Wind- Winds will be gusty out of the ENE gusting at times up to 40mph. This combined with the heavy wet snow will cause scattered power outages.
Tides- This storm presents no perticularly high coastal flood threat but minor splashover is possible.
