A surface low pressure system tracking from the Ohio Valley to New England on Thursday is expected to bring deteriorating weather conditions to much of the Northeast U.S. to close out the work week, according to the National Weather Service.
Shortwave energy aloft will allow for this low to intensify some as it approaches the coast on Friday morning. Many areas in interior New England and upstate New York will likely get their first accumulating snow of the season, mainly for elevations above 2000 feet. Several inches of snow is likely for the highest elevations. Windy and rainy conditions are expected near the New England coast as the low acquires characteristics of a nor’easter near Nova Scotia by Friday evening.
