Snow, ice expected to cause travel delays Saturday, forecasters say

24 Jan 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

D.C. area forecast: Periodic light rain or snow possible today, bigger snow risk Sunday night into Monday.

Other totals included 3 inches in Wales in Hampden County, 2.5 inches in Westfield, 1.8 inches in Acushnet and Southbridge, 1.6 inches in Andover, and 1.5 inches in Chicopee, Belchertown, Winthrop, and at Logan Airport in East Boston.A swift and powerful Nor’easter is expected to hammer the Big Apple this weekend — unleashing fierce rain, a blanket of snow and dangerously icy roads, city officials said. “It’s going to be a messy situation tonight and tomorrow,” said Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito, speaking Friday during a press conference at OEM headquarters. “We’re expecting between 2 to 5 inches of snow and probably some accumulation of some icing conditions,” Esposito explained. “We’re expecting some wintery mix tonight. Today (Saturday): The bulk of this storm is done, but it’s still spinning just off to our east during the early morning, so some impacts are likely to remain. The bad weather will start off as snow on Friday just before midnight and will then transform into a brief period of freezing rain before sunrise, meteorologists said.

Snow in those areas began early Saturday — and it could mix with freezing rain, sleet, and rain before returning to snow in the evening, forecasters said. The Nor’easter should move out of the area by Saturday night, but flurries could still be seen Sunday morning, according to The National Weather Service. Confidence: Medium-High Tomorrow night: Despite mild temperatures on Sunday, a cold high pressure to the north mixes with a strong clipper system passing to the south to quickly bring cold air into the region as precipitation gets underway overnight.
