Regional Weather Story

400 PM EST Mon Jan 23 2017

A strong coastal low to our south will make its way up to New
England this afternoon bringing extended periods of strong winds and
mixed precipitation. With afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s in
Southeastern New England, most areas west of Worcester will see
mostly rain for this event. However, areas at higher elevation,
especially in Northern Massachusetts, may see periods of heavy snow
and sleet as temperatures remain in the low 30s.

Due to periods of heavy precipitation across Southern New England,
flooding is possible east of Worcester, as well as areas of icing
west of Worcester. Heavy precipitation will continue into the
evening across the region with overnight temperatures remaining in
the 30s.

Winds will peak early Tuesday as the coastal low sits off the
Southern coast of New England. Winds may gust up to 60 mph along the
coast and 40 mph inland. As temperatures warm tomorrow morning,
areas of snow may change over to sleet or freezing rain at higher
elevations. Temperatures are expected to reach into the mid 30s in
Southwestern New England, with Southeastern New England ranging in
the 40s to 50s. Areas east of Worcester may see up to 3 inches of
rain by Tuesday evening.

Skies will begin to clear early Wednesday morning as the coastal low
moves into the Gulf of Maine. With high pressure building in over
the region, Southern New England will remain clear and dry through
the weekend.
