Storm Coordination Message #2 – Minor Snow Accumulations – Sunday Afternoon 1/3/21-Monday Morning 1/4/21

Hello to all…

..Storm system will bring generally minor snow accumulations to portions of Southern New England Sunday Afternoon into Monday Morning..
..A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from 1 PM Sunday to 7 AM Monday for Northern Connecticut, Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Worcester, and North-Central Middlesex Counties of Massachusetts and is expanded into Northwest Providence County Rhode Island for 2-4″ of snow. The risk of snowfall totals higher than 4″ has decreased and its possible amounts could be even less than indicated. If snow amounts reach 4″ or more, isolated tree and power line damage and isolated power outages would be possible..
..Interior areas of Southern New England north and west of I-95 will see a coating to 2″ of snow..
..Model trends have been declining snowfall accumulation for the region. The storm appears to intensify too far east to bring more accumulating snow to the region. If this were to unexpectedly occur closer to our region, higher amounts would be possible but currently the trend is for the current predicted amounts or lesser amounts in our region..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the winter storm system for Sunday Afternoon into Monday Morning with Amateur Radio call-up nets are possible. This will be the last coordination message on this storm unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Winter Weather Advisory Statement, Area Forecast Discussion, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and snow and ice maps..
