•••WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY••• Monday Night February 17th 2014 Cape Ann Weather..
The NWS in Taunton has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our area from 7am Tuesday to 7pm .. Hazard types heavy snow at times with reduced Visibilities to a half mile or less.. Calling for 3-5″ for Cape Ann with east winds 10-20 mph . Driving conditions expected to get treacherous after 1pm.
Ok that’s from the NWS .. My thoughts really are as follows : First off will have a east or south east wind that’s a warming wind direction that would make for a very wet wet snow ! Very hard to accumulate on roadways with east / south east winds and temps in mid 30’s.. With that being said it’s not impossible but unlikely .. I’m calling for 1-2″ perhaps 3″ worst case scenario . It’s also possible we mix or change to rain … Nothing to panic over / no strong winds or freeze ups .. Minor to very minor event .. West of Cape Ann say Beverly or Salem better chance at the 5″ amounts further away from the marine influence …
After this minor event we warm up into the upper 30’s perhaps 40’s with rains on Friday … Weekend looking good at this time but that could change .. Back to winter next Monday cold returns and train of snow storms as well .. Have a great Monday night ! See ya sum time on Tuesday … Thanks for reading …
