This will be a fast moving, intense burst of snow focused during Saturday night along our coastline, essentially, a 6-to-8 hour window where we will accumulate snow very rapidly.
Here is the latest timeline for the storm, inch-by-inch, drop-by-drop.
So it looks like a 3-commute nightmare – beginning during the Thursday morning commute, peaking during the Thursday evening commute and ending just before the Friday morning drive.
If the snow does arrive mid-morning on Thursday as we expect, this could be a situation where schools are forced to let out early in the middle of some very heavy snow.
It is much too early to project where this rain-snow line will setup and who will stay all snow, but, those areas that do not mix with rain could easily see 6-to-12 inches of snow or more.
Most areas will get 8-to-12 inches of snow Wednesday and several towns will be reporting 9, 10 and 11-inch amounts.
It will encompass all of New England, dump significant amounts of heavy, wet snow and impact both the morning and evening commutes.
Here are the details about three storms that could hit the region this week:
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.
