Yet Another Light Snow Event Today

Hello everyone!

We seem to be nickel and diming our way back to respectable season snowfall totals as several light snow events have occurred across the region during the past week or so. Another of these light events will impact the region today. Radar imagery shows the first round of light/moderate precip departing the coast as of 5:45 AM with a break in precip over NH/VT and another round of snow back in NY. The area of low pressure responsible for producing these bands of snow is weak, elongated, and drifting east over Pennsylvania.

As a result, I suspect most spots only have another inch or maybe two to pick up during the rest of the morning. Seeing as temps along the coastal plain range from around 30 to around 34, I wouldn’t expect any issues on road surfaces that have gotten a bit of salt. Perhaps the back roads could be slick though. Leftover snow from this system departs to the east this afternoon.

This evening, all eyes will turn to the approach of a strong Arctic front. Snow showers and squalls will develop along the leading edge of the colder air and could drop another quick coating-1″ after sunset. Behind the front, NW winds will pick up and temps will quickly drop as a brief shot of true Arctic air arrives.
