After a few quiet days in the weather department, we focus our attention on Sunday. We have a winter storm watch ahead for a long duration winter weather event from Sunday afternoon through Monday night and into early Tuesday morning.
If you're traveling on Sunday you may want to start thinking about hitting the road a day early. The first winter storm is upon us with accumulating snowfall for most. While this isn't a block buster storm due to the timing it could cause lots of problems on the roads. Timing 12-1pm for most of the state so starting a little bit later than originally anticipated. The storm comes in three round initially starting off as snow switching to a mix, sleet and rain. A lull in the action occurs on Monday before another burst of snow arrives Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Either way it does look like everyone gets, snow and sleet making it not ideal conditions to be traveling in. Here is the latest breakdown:
That changeover could happen faster along the shore but may take more time inland/hills where it may never fully occur. The threat for snow/mix/rain continues into Monday night which could mean a longer weekend for kids. For more information click HERE
It's a slow-moving storm system, so there may be impacts from noon Sunday until late Monday into early Tuesday. Quiet weather will persist for much of the week ahead with cooler temperatures after the storm.
