Need to Increase Snow Totals Today
It looks like 1-3 inches of snow will fall South of the MA Pike with a coating to and inch possible all the way to Northern MA border. As much as 6-8 inches may fall along the South Coast of New England, especially in CT. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Southern CT, all of RI, and portions of SE MA. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Wednesday.
High pressure in the Midwest is fueling the temperature gradient which is helping to produce a lot of precipitation this morning. Here is the radar
Temperatures are still in the low 30's in Southern New England and they will cool a few degrees today
Maybe a bit more in South Central/Western MA and Northwest CT but here is what I expect
If you drive to Providence for work expect conditions to worsen as you head south. If this low wobbles a bit further north there will be a lot of people cursing the weather and meteorologists in general. The snow will end around 5-7 PM. More on Wednesday's storm this afternoon/evening.
