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.
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.
As Red Sox Nation can finally rest and get some sleep, Mother Nature is about to wake up.
Snow totals are widely variable throughout the region with just a few inches in some areas all the way up 12-to-24 inches in parts of Worcester County and southeastern Massachusetts.
A fresh layer of several inches of snow will coat the ground and many roads by Friday morning’s commute, leading to some tricky and treacherous travel. Snow will continue all morning and finally begin to taper off during Friday afternoon.
The greatest concern with this event will be along the coastline. There will likely be a significant impact for the entire Massachusetts coast with severe beach erosion and flooding.
Clearly this is not a storm to be taken lightly. If you have not already completed your storm preparations you should do so immediately.
