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.
NWS Boston Advisories 02/03/14
Here is the surface chart this morning.  Notice the low in Western NC
WPC Surface Analysis 4 am EST
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
NWS Northeast Regional Radar 528 am
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
02.03.14 Snow Expectation
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.
