Location is everything…If you happen to reside about 5-10 miles south of Boston, you are looking at a winter wonderland with between 10-15” of new snow. On the flip side, just 5-10 miles north of Boston and you can clean your driveway with a broom, only a dusting to a few inches.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Eastern Massachusetts from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday afternoon.
It is extremely cold out, wind chills are dangerously low. The kids may want to wait a day or two to hit the hills with their sleds or build the snowman.
This is one of the coldest snowstorms in recent memory. Boston, Worcester and all points north and west are stuck in the single digits and dropping!
Nor’easter 2014 has arrived. It may take a while to get revved up but once we get there it is going to pack a significant punch.
This will be a long duration event with nearly 36 hours of light to moderate snowfall.
Our first true Nor’easter of the season appears to be on its way for later this week, but some good news as it appears we may skip a worst-case scenario.
I would urge you pay a little extra attention to the forecast over the next 48 hours and be prepared for a rude welcome back to work and school from Mother Nature.
It will be a “Nor’easter type storm” that will bring about an inch of rain to southern New England.
Expect a very slow and dangerous evening drive for almost all of southern New England this evening.
