The forecast for the Boston Marathon is not quite etched in stone yet.
The forecast for the Boston Marathon seemed clear-cut Monday but I am not quite as highly confident of the specifics right now.
The good news: we can just about put this snowstorm in the books…
There will be a widespread 2-to-4 inches (at least) on the ground by Tuesday morning’s commute, just about everywhere. I expect lots of delays, cancellations and an extremely challenging morning drive.
Why did we get so much more snow than expected Friday?
This storm will include a plethora of weather conditions – heavy, wet snow inland, heavy rain for the Cape and Islands, damaging winds, and coastal issues.
The coast will be dealing with a rain-mix throughout this storm with heavy, wet snow falling away from the coast.
A Winter Storm Watch is in place north and west of 495, which will most likely be upgraded to a warning later today.
Not only do we have more snow on the way in less than 48 hours, but temperatures following our next snow event are going to be near or below normal for the foreseeable future.
