3/3/19: Snow for the overnight will Taper into Monday morning

Weather Blog

Latest Forecast from Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:

Our storm system is moving in right on time this evening… Light to moderate steady snow will fall through the overnight hours and will taper off early Monday morning. 

But this is a wide reaching storm, a double edge sword if you will, while we are dealing with snow here in the northeast the southeast is dealing with a very stormy evening with severe storms and many tornadoes have spun up over the afternoon and early evening.

Our main concern as noted will certainly be the snowfall through the night tonight and into tomorrow. I believe the heaviest snow will fall between 11pm and 3am… Then we will begin to slowly taper off from west to east .

So the good news for the morning commute will be the heaviest of the snow will be departing but there will be several inches that have fallen so that could lead to slippery travel in the morning. Fast moving system though, by tomorrow afternoon we may see some sunshine in between a few scattered flurries.

Here is the snowfall map, not much at all has changed since last night or this morning, still expecting a general 2-4 inches for most with 4-6 possible through the Berkshires, Catskills, Taconics and the southern Green Mountains.

There could be isolated 7 or 8″ reading in southern Berkshire county, but that will be the exception. 

For the next week colder air moves in by Tuesday and sticks around through Thursday with windchill temperatures on Wednesday expected to dip into the single digits once again. We will remain unsettled as well with period of light snow showers and flurries through this time period.

Have a great week!
