FIRST CALL 2/8 @ 3PM: Good afternoon and we have another batch of snow/mix coming back to our area. I have been watching this threat for a while and it looks like snow will move into our area tomorrow afternoon and will be mostly wet snow and even some rain down on the South Shore. Temperatures will be in the mid and upper 30's. However, tomorrow night temperatures will go down and allow for some accumulating snowfall. This will allow for a 1-2" snowfall south of the Pike to around Boston. I would expect Boston to get around 1", while more snow will accumulate north and west of Route 128, where 2-4" will fall. I expect some spots in ORH Co. to pick up scattered 5" amounts. This will extend into Vermont. The heaviest of the snow will be confined to coastal NH and ME where 4-8" of snow will fall. Most will see between 4-6", but some further areas will get close to 8" of snow. Its seems like it just wants to keep snowing today with another 1/4" to 1/2" today with today's peristent light snows. This should come to an end later this afternoon and allow for some drying and melting tomorrow before we add on to it. This is it for now. Up north, its been snowing on and off since about Tuesday morning and some spots have seen weekly snowfall close to 30-40" so far! Some ski resorts will pick up close to 10" of snow tomorrow, so you can bet that the skiing will be absolutely AMAZING. Even in VT, some places saw between 12-20" of snow with yesterday's snowstorm alone. Its amazing up north with regular snow depths away from the resorts in everyone's yards around 25-45". Simply amazing. More coming with more possible next week.
