Good afternoon storm lovers! A fairly strong upper air low will merge with a coastal storm on Friday morning. This combo will produce very heavy snow and wind for interior sections of New England Friday afternoon through early Saturday. For us, the potential is there for a plowable snow fall (3-7") most of which may occur with warm air advection late Thursday night into Friday.. The initial low will throw in enough warm air aloft to cause a mix of sleet for a time early Friday before temperatures grow colder in the afternoon and night.
If you're hoping for lake enhancement, I don't see it. The coastal low's influence will be too far away to produce much early Saturday. Snow showers to sunshine for Saturday and a beautiful Sunday on the way too. Looks like you should drive 6 hours East if you want to enjoy a big snow this time around!
