Still In The Ice Box, Fluffy Snow Fri Eve South

This appears the last frigid arctic night in the recent stretch, Wind Chill Advisories are up for the potential of values dipping to near -18°F throughout most of our areas except closer to coastal locations. But, don’t worry its frigid there too !  We make a bit of progress Friday but many will be in upper teens and low-mid 20’s at best. The saving grace looks to be much less wind with high pressure over head. Systems merge well south and east of southern New England Late Friday though enough moisture and plenty of cold air in place to bring flurries, and a period of light snow for some especially along the South coast of Connecticut, Rhode Island and SE Massachusetts  and Cape Cod and the Islands once again.  Minuscule moisture though we will take advantage of every flake that falls being so cold and a favorable fluff factor.

Time frame looks like after 8pm Friday evening from west/southwest to north/northeast and looks to wrap up before dawn Saturday  for most, though a few snow showers may remain over extreme east/southeast Massachusetts through the morning hours before that storm takes off and explodes into a large gale center.
