Winter Storm Warning Issued

More model runs are expected later tonight.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Barron, Buffalo, Dunn, Pepin, Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix Counties until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Snow potential during the March 6-8, 2018 nor'easter.

Correia said the current forecast is for 8 to 12 inches of snow west of Boston and into Rhode Island and CT. We will watch for a band of snow to set up somewhere in NJ / Eastern PA.

A storm that dumped rain along the West Coast is moving eastward.Storms will stretch from the Upper Midwest to almost the Gulf Coast Monday morning.

Forget yesterday's news. Get what you need today in this early-morning email. Riley's path gave the Friday storm an unusually strong cyclone that whipped winds through the northeast with hurricane force. Under this band, snowfall rates will be prolific, over 1 inch per hour.

Rain may mix with snow as far south as Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. As the storm matures, a band of heavy snow will develop and press into northern and perhaps central New Jersey. The wind won't be almost as strong as we saw during last week's powerful coastal storm. Steady winds of 15 to 20 miles per hour are likely with gusts up to at least 30 miles per hour, said Frank Pereira, a forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. But scattered outages are still possible from a combination of gusty winds and a heavy wet snow.

"Then it keeps snowing until Tuesday morning", he said. Three days after the storm, some residents were still unsure when they could return to their homes. Another bout of rain, wind and more importantly, snow will fall on Wednesday.

There could be another storm early next week, but it's too early to know if it hits us or misses. This rain/snow line is likely west of Boston.

This will be a relatively quiet period. Lows will drop into the upper 20s. On Thursday, daytime highs will be about 40 degrees. It will take until late afternoon, east of the MS, to see the complete changeover to heavy, wet snow.

Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 48.

Don't forget, this weekend we will "spring forward" to daylight Saving time! Along the coastline, rain and snow will fall, but the trend will be for the snow to move towards the coastline overnight.

In addition, northwest winds Friday make it feel a bit raw. Plan for extra drive time Tuesday morning.

Winds along parts of the MA coast whipped in excess of 90 miles per hour during the storm.
