Storm could bring foot of snow to areas of MA

Another snow storm arrives this week

Tonight is dry with no weather problems.

A storm system will slide a cold front across the region on Thursday.

Thursday night will bring partly cloudy skies that will give way to clearer conditions overnight.

The commutes that will be impacted by this storm are the Thursday afternoon commute and the Friday morning commute. "There will be more snow inland and less snow on the beaches". The storm will strengthen across the northeastern United States and pull colder air in behind it. Other areas such as Libby, Troy, Noxon, Thompson Falls, Plains, Eureka, Lolo Hot Springs, and Sula should see between 3 and 7 inches of snow and are under Winter Weather Advisories. In the southern Adirondacks, snowfall could be more like 4 to 8 inches. Lookout Pass will see up to 15 inches by early Wednesday while Marias will see up to 10.

The Missoula and Bitterroot valleys have the potential to see snow banding as we move into the evening and overnight hours thanks to a strong west to northwest wind in the higher levels of the atmosphere. By Friday morning, it will be over. Some power outages could occur because of the wind gusts or because of the heavy wet snow.

Light winds are expected in the mountains - a contrast to last week, when severe wind conditions forced some ski resorts to close chairlifts.

New Year's Day on Sunday is looking to be mostly sunny with a high in the mid-40s.
