M. Ressler, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



A rapidly deepening storm, heading from Cape Cod to the Maritimes, is dumping heavy snow across northern New England. Through midday, northern New York and Vermont have already picked up anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of snow. The higher elevations of south-central New Hampshire are already surpassing a foot of snow and heavy snow is advancing northward through Maine. Most areas from northern and central Vermont to most of Maine will end up with well over a foot of snow by early Friday. Parts of Maine could see near 2 feet of snow. Rain has soaked Southern New England. Now colder air is arriving and will gradually change the rain to snow over the higher elevations of Massachusetts first and then the lower elevations from northwest to southeast across the state. Southern New Hampshire and southernmost Maine plus the highest elevations of Massachusetts could see accumulations to between 3 and 7 inches. The lower elevations of Massachusetts excluding Cape Cod will pick up several inches. A winter storm warning continues for northeast New York, Vermont, northern and central New Hampshire and most of Maine. A winter weather advisory remains in effect for southern New Hampshire, southernmost Maine and much of Massachusetts. Winds will increase through tonight as the low strengthens with blowing and drifting snow likely. Upper-level disturbances have combined with gusty northwesterly winds to dump between 2 and 10 inches of snow along the spine of the central and southern Appalachians.


Meanwhile, an upper-level disturbance with a deep tropical moisture supply will target areas from Southern California to southwest Colorado and western New Mexico. Flooding is likely as several inches of rain are in the forecast with higher amounts in the mountains. The burn areas will be most vulnerable to flooding and mudslides.
