any beantowners here? Boston about to get rocked by blizzard

If Boston is to set a record Saturday, the City will need to spend several hours beneath one of these bands, which could drop in excess of 3” of snow in an hour. Southeastern MA (Plymouth, Bristol and Barnstable counties) are the most likely areas to get rocked with banding. Next up would be the immediate coastline from Boston through Cape Ann. Records are hard to set…we have about 150 years of record keeping here in Boston. I don’t care what the models say, there is a reason why we have so few storms that reach 2 feet or more. I would rate setting a record at a long shot.

TIMELINE:

Midnight-7am Saturday: Light snow begins over a good portion of southeast MA and most areas south of the Mass Pike at Midnight and spreads northward. By 7am it is snowing in all of Southern New England and as far north as Manchester or Concord NH. By 7am there will only be a coating to a few inches north of the Pike and 2-4” south of the Pike.

7am-1pm Saturday: The snow intensity increases hour by hour with the heaviest bands located over southeastern MA. By 10am we start to see some of those intense snow bands setting up in southernmost areas and the snowfall rates reaching 1-3” per hour. We could start to approach blizzard conditions in this window with winds approaching their peak. By 1pm I would expect 3-6” north of the Pike and 6-12” south of the Pike.

1pm-7pm Saturday: The storm will stay at peak for most of this timeframe. With the wind gusts and the snow intensity peaking together, we will reach white-out conditions in many areas, especially near the Coastline. Some areas could exceed 3” per hour snow rates. By 6-7pm there will be a noticeable decrease in snow intensity, the heavy bands will be losing their grip and the majority of the accumulation will be over.

7pm-Midnight Saturday: The snow tapers to moderate and then light and shuts off completely by midnight.

A little break from the grief...

So we're all supposed to "prepare for blizzard conditions" just because the scientific establishment and the media say so? And anyone who says it will be sunny and 70 is canceled?

All's I'm saying is, lots of $ changing hands in snow shovel industry. Do your own meteorology.

People who use shovels and wear hats are living in fear.

I’m an hour from Boston and in the 12-18” zone. I am fine with the snow but not with the wind and potential outages. WFH this weekend…

that map is a crapshoot, as the storms like this typically swirl over the coast for a period, come back, and maybe do it again, but lighter or heavier. Still, counting on at least 12" for now. Hoping it's not 24" or more, that becomes a serious problem in the city.

Can't help but admire how beautiful everything looks under two feet of new snow - especially when in the rear view mirror. gears smiley

What he said...except I'm not fine with the snow. I'm about 40 miles south of Boston, in the 18-28" zone and very much not looking forward to this. Full tank of propane for the generator, but if we're without power for more than a day, I'll need to make at least one run for a refill. Thankfully we can use the deck as a giant refrigerator so food doesn't spoil.

In Buffalo, we used to call it "Springtime".

I’m not THAT fine with it, ha. We have a new plow guy because ours moved(hope he’s good and reliable), and our tractor has a hydraulic leak(new one won’t be here for a couple of months) and didn’t do well plowing after the last storm. I can’t quite manage to move the generator outside and hook it up myself, and I will be technically fine without power during the day - we need it at night for CPAPs, so that’s when we run heat, fridge, well pump, charging stuff… but man, it’ll be boring if I’m home all weekend with no power/internet during the day. It'll just be shoveling. I’m risking a batch of bagels now. First world problem. My other half is going to work along with a change of clothes, pills, and food in case he needs to sleep there.

EVERYONE online thinks I’m a guy. I talk about superhot peppers, beer, tractors, trucks… but in person, there would be no question!

I’m too lazy to put a photo somewhere to host, and too private to post one. But 34-25-35 should paint a picture.
