Another intense Nor’easter is winding up and moving through our coastal waters tonight. The result is snow, rain, damaging wind and coastal flooding and it won’t completely let up until tomorrow evening. As the storm approaches, colder temps are being sucked down into Southern New England from the north and overhead with heavier precipitation. Snow has been the predominant precipitation type for most with rain hanging on in SE Mass. Within the snow belt, we are seeing bands of snow set up…this has lead to a big difference in snow totals over a short distance…one part of town may end up with 5″ while the other side of town gets 2″. The hardest hit areas are the SW suburbs of Boston where around a half a foot will fall making a mess of the morning commute. Most other towns will pick up 1-3″ and some near the NH border just a coating. Another hard hit spot is the Worcester area where another band of 3-6″ will pile up. The storm will still be hanging around offshore throughout the day tomorrow and so will additional rain showers for much of the area and some snow showers for the interior.
Winds will stay gusty through the night with the strongest and potentially damaging gusts confined to the coast and SE Mass. While it will remain gusty the wind won’t be nearly as strong as this evening.
