We have mostly clear skies for tonight, with breezy but dry conditions. Lows ranging from the single digits to the low teens. Tomorrow will also be a fair weather day, with clouds building as the day progresses, though the day will be dry, as I continue to monitor the storm headed our way, I'm adding some snow into the forecast late Thursday...

With THAT said, let's get to the heart of the matter. Friday's storm will be an impactful one with snowfall totals ranging anywhere from 8-25 inches plus. The perfect conditions aligned for two storms to meet up. This will allow for an impressive amount of snow across the state, ranging anywhere from 5"-10" for the shoreline, and a possible 25+ inches for the inland terrain. I do think that the NE portion of the state could max out at just over 25". Winds will also be an issue, with gusts in excess of 35mph. Blizzard conditions include gusts >35mph, 1/4 mile visibility, and of course snow,  but the first two are the most important ingredients. With that said I would begin to make alternative plans for the end of this week. This storm is going to be severe and I expect the possibility of power outages. Of course schools may be closed, and keep an eye on DOT because some roads may even be closed.  Be prepared and plan ahead!
