Lowell Area Forecast

UML Student Meteorologist: Nicholas Buck
Merrimack Valley Regional
Good morning everyone! Today, we will see a powerful winter
storm move into the area. The storm is moving off the eastern seaboard,
and as it moves up the coast, is rapidly intensifying. The timing of
the storm looks to be Monday night into Wednesday with the worst
conditions looking to be Monday night into Tuesday. The National
Weather Service has issued Blizzard Warnings in the area in preparation
for the storm. Expect this system to be intense, with 20-30 mph winds
and gusts ranging between 40-50 mph, white out conditions, and snowfall
rates of 2-4 inches an hour. With the high winds, there's a chance of
power outages. Please plan accordingly for this storm as it has
historic potential in the area, and should not be taken lightly.
Snowfall totals look to be 24-36 inches by the time the storm moves out
of the area. Locally higher amounts are possible. After this winter
storm, we see another system approach the area Friday. This one looks
weaker and has a lot of time to change, but is something to keep an eye
on as we get closer to Friday. Stay safe and have a great day! Don't
forget to follow us on Twitter @UMLWeatherCtr and like our
UMLWeatherCtr Facebook Page for the latest on the winter
storm. Thanks for the continued
