All is quiet yet very cold in the weather department today. Partly sunny skies will prevail with blustery conditions that will make it feel even colder than the actual reading on your thermometer.
Here are the latest snowfall totals from the National Weather Service as of Saturday evening.
Clearly this is not a storm to be taken lightly. If you have not already completed your storm preparations you should do so immediately.
Here are the latest snowfall totals from Rob Macedo, the SKYWARN Coordinator for the National Weather Service in Taunton:
We are still expecting a widespread 18-to-24 inches or more from this storm, with some isolated areas possibly getting 30 inches.
This could turn out to be a top 5 snowstorm for Boston. There have only been 6 other storms (on record since 1892) when Boston has received 20+ inches of snow from one storm.
The snowstorm Friday will be big, but will it be historic and rival some of the legendary storms of Boston’s past? The short answer is it just might.
Each model now shows significant snowfall impacting southern New England, with the heart of the storm occurring from Friday evening through early Saturday morning.
Some light snow has fallen overnight creating slick neighborhood streets, sidewalks, and parking lots. Please drive and walk carefully.
Massachusetts roads started to get slick Wednesday night as a winter storm arrived that could drop up to a foot of snow in some parts of the state.
