Well, it’s very possible in my eyes. After seeing the first part to this storm last night, just leaving a coating to an inch in a few spots, tonight... I expect a whole lot more. As I continue to mention, these late season winter storms are very tricky to forecast.

Since we are nearing the end of winter, the ground temperature is a lot warmer than what it was in mid-January. That being said, I am expecting moderate to occasionally heavy snow for much of the night and morning tomorrow. This means that the snow will fall as the temperatures drop. This will create icy roads through the early night and as soon as the roads icy over, the snow will begin to accumulate

Now it’s not just the storm that is of the Cape Cod coast that is causing the precipitation, it’s actually a secondary low pressure system that is streaming down from the north, enhancing the precipitation. If these storms didn't meet up, I would not expect more than a few inches, but since that are, several inches is likely!

 By the time we are all set and done, which won’t probably be until late morning or early afternoon tomorrow, I am expecting anywhere form 2-4 inches along the immediate shoreline, 3-6 for a good part of the state and maybe up to 8+ inches for the extreme northeast and northwest parts of the state.

Due to the fact that we will likely see several inches already on the ground by the time we wake up tomorrow as well as snow falling during the am commute... I am calling for mostly school CLOSINGS tomorrow with delays otherwise. This is still an ongoing storm and things can change but as of now, as the snow is starting to accumulate and won’t stop until mid-day tomorrow, I am pretty confident that most if not all schools will LIKELY be closed tomorrow as the snow keeps falling during school hours.

As always, keep checking back to as well as my Twitter page @zduhaimedmj for the latest info on this late season winter storm.
