increased in wispy clouds the afternoon. the storm is impressive across the south tracking severe weather right now in parts of the florida panhandle. snow and ice advancing through the carolinas and virginia. snowing in kentucky and snowing in arkansas right now. this storm is impressive and the storm center is going to redevelop off the carolina coastline and strengthen off the delmarva. let's zoom in. today's fine tonight is fine in southern new england and tomorrow morning we are doing all right but the snow will advance across southwest connecticut and new york city early tomorrow morning. notice the timeline as we advance the snow into new england through the afternoon and evening especially. so by 4 p.m. snow likely to come up somewhere near the mass new hampshire border woa. may get mixing in the outer cape and nantucket but snap back to snow. this is midnight on saturday night. so the height of the storm for us here in southern new england occurs saturday night into the predawn on sunday.
for a lot of spots. from boston back down to the cape there will be some pockets of light snow. but that snow will taper off quickly during the late morning and the sun is going to be shining on sunday and wind will subside. it's still a little uncertainty as to the exact track but here's what we are thinking for weekendsnowfall totals talking about flurries a coating up to the mass new hampshire border coating to two inches for boston including worcester and providence points south is when we are talking about steadier snow amounts. 2 to 5 inches and i wouldn't be surprised to see some higher totals. somewhere like new bedford and chatham and back down to nantucket. the wind is also going to be an issue. notice by saturday evening, tomorrow, gusts over 50 miles per hour from the south shore to the cape. winds shift to the north saturday night into sunday morning. still some gusts over 40 miles per hour at the coastline. that does mean that with minor coastal fluting saturday night and sunday -- flooding saturday
