Snow and Mix for the Northeast and Northern Great Lakes

A messy storm will move across the Great Lakes today into tonight followed by a trailing storm later Tuesday and Wednesday. Boundary layer temperatures will be the issue with the storm. As I said last week, the accumulating snow will be north of I-90 across the Northeast and across the northern Great Lakes where 1-6 inches will accumulating depending on location and elevation.  South of this areas will be a mixture of snow, sleet, freezing rain and just rain with a light glaze and some travel issues.

I used the 3km NAM model total snowfall to illustrate the snowfall with the storm.

The storm is a good example of the cold air that has been lacking for a good part of December.

Cold is not lacking here in northern New England this year. Some of the best ice conditions in a couple years. Deep cold this morning with single digits above and below zero here this morning with a stiff breeze in higher elevations. Granted it hasn’t been brutally cold just typical below normal temperature overall with some above normal thrown in at times for good measure but, it has been cold especially over the interior where we have a solid snow pack.
