Coastal snowstorm

Kevin Roth, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Snow has been falling since Sunday afternoon over sections of New England as easterly winds brought some ocean enhanced snow showers ashore ahead of the storm. Snow from the system itself should overspread New England tonight and end by noontime Monday. However, ocean-effect snow showers may linger into Monday evening over eastern sections of New England. Total snow from this storm may be 1-3 inches over western and central New England, 3-5 inches around the Boston Metro area and as high as 6-10 inches on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.


An upper level disturbance rolling through the eastern Great Lakes produced light snow and snow showers throughout the day Sunday over the Ohio Valley and lower Great Lakes. Accumulations were generally 1-3 inches. Tonight that disturbance should roll through the coastal plain of the Mid-Atlantic states. Snow showers are likely with some locations possibly picking up an inch or two of accumulation.


A fresh surge of arctic air spilling across the Great Lakes will produce lake-effect snow squalls through Monday night. Favored snow belts may pick up over a foot of snow by Monday night.
