A moderate plowable snowstorm remains likely for much of Southern New England late Monday Night into Tuesday Afternoon. The headlines depict the current thinking. Key factors include:
1.) The strength of the approaching system as if its able to maintain strength further south and east, it could result in a bit more snowfall and those model trends of a bit of a stronger system has continued so the Winter Storm Warning was expanded to more of the region.
2.) Exact placement of the heaviest snowfall. The highest confidence is in the current Winter Storm Warning areas but other portions of the Winter Weather Advisory area will be monitored.
3.) The amount of mixing along southeast coastal areas in addition to precipitation intensity for this region. This is the area of greatest uncertainty on snow amounts.
4.) Winds and snow consistency should be such that tree and power line damage should be minimal but this will be monitored closely.
