(this is a thread with a few good tweets/graphics)

National Weather Service: “Don’t be surprised if you hear a rumble of thunder…along with heavy downpours” in southeastern Mass.

[Snow Forecast] Here is the latest snow forecast for Southern New England. The most snow will be in the East Slopes of the Berkshires and in the Northern Worcester Hills.

The storm system that will impact New England tonight into Mon, has #tropical origins from the Yucatán Peninsula! Also, notice all the lightning flashes approaching western Cuba to south FL. This copious moisture will stream north up the eastern seaboard. #MAwx #RIwx #CTwx

Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA): “Potentially damaging winds on Monday morning; up to 70 mph gusts possible along eastern MA coast including Cape Ann & Cape Cod areas.”

Eric Fisher, CBSNews: “For those along and inside 495, it’s essentially a rainstorm.”

A good way to look at snowfall with this storm is snow depth

Here’s an approximation. You see some initial overnight snow falling (roughly midnight to 5a interior spots) but what’s left at the end is sloppy mess for interior hills

Jason Brewer, WCVB: “Multiple hazards w/ our next storm arriving tonight, & ski country snow!”

Cindy Fitzgibbon, WCVB: ‘Snow to a sloppy mix and rain’


Impact weather starting today through the weekend

-Powerful winds and falling temps today

-Bitter cold and subzero wind chills tonight-Saturday

-Another Storm Sunday night-Monday with snow to a sloppy mix and rain

Breaking it all down on #WCVB

Another coastal storm Sunday night-Monday

-This will start as snow-> then change to an icy mix-> then rain as SE winds bring in warmer air off the ocean.

-Best chance of getting close to 6″ looks to be N&W of I-495 with higher amounts in the mountains.#WCVB

Tonight – noon Saturday for FEELS LIKE TEMPS of 15-25 BELOW ZERO. Biting winds and temps in the single digits will make for a BITTER cold start to the weekend. Limit your time outdoors and bring in your pets! #WCVB

Matt Noyes, NBC10 Boston and NECN: ‘A substantial storm’ with ‘a swath of accumulating snow’

Early to speak confidently on amounts Sun Night/Mon, but we’ve been sharing our built-in-house @nbc10boston @necn Forecast System on-air for the last few days & it’s been consistent in message: pot’l for 6-12″ snow deep inland/north, little SE areas & in between is…in between!

— Matt Noyes NBC10 Boston & NECN (@MattNBCBoston) January 14, 2022

Our next storm arrives overnight Sunday night and lasts into Monday. Multiple facets with this one: preceding cold air means a swath of accumulating snow likely for most Sun Night, then rain/snow line marches in from the ocean. Onshore wind, late Mon AM coastal flooding.

Zack Green, WBZ: ‘Less of a winter event’ for Central and Eastern Mass.

Sarah Wroblewski, WBZ: A shift northwest ‘would bring more rain to SNE and snow north and west.’

Way to early for specifics for next Monday… still a lot of spread in the computer models, but you can see that shift northwest today, which would bring more rain to SNE and snow north and west. #WBZ
