Ready for the Pi Day nor’easter folks?
Snow will spread across the region this morning, becoming heavy at times during the afternoon and into tonight as deep low pressure tracks northeastward across Cape Cod and into downeast Maine over the next 24 hours. Winds will intensify this afternoon through early Wednesday, creating whiteout conditions, and blowing and drifting snow. Wraparound light snow and blowing and drifting conditions will continue through the day Wednesday as the low departs. High pressure will bring drier weather conditions Thursday and Friday, then another area of low pressure tracking east-southeastward from the Great Lakes region will bring the potential for additional snowfall Saturday into early Sunday.
