Boston’s WBZ-TV and sister-station myTV38 (WSBK-TV) are part of CBS Television Stations, a division of CBS Corporation.
Here are the details of what will essentially be a moderate Nor’easter type event.
The general time frame we’ll be watching Wednesday is between 3 and 11 p.m. from west to east.
Our WBZ Weather Team has issued a Storm Watch Weather Alert for Friday.
There’s a threat for flooding Thursday into Friday.
Expect reduced visibility, snow covered roads and some slick travel through the afternoon.
For those that may have been wishing for a big shift in the storm track–sorry, you’re out of luck.
A significant coastal storm will impact the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Monday night through part of Wednesday with heavy snow, damaging wind gusts, and coastal flooding.
The wind is the main story Thursday and the snow will arrive during the pre-dawn hours Friday.
Later on this evening and overnight, we’ll see snow return as a significant storm impacts parts of New England.
Sunday into Monday is a high stakes forecast. The potential is there for plowable snow all the way to the shore if everything comes together just right.
