Massachusetts and the rest of New England is bracing for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain.
Lately, conditions have been perfect for an explosive weather pattern. Hurricane Sandy was followed by a November nor’easter bringing the season’s first snowfall.
With each and every snow event there is almost certain to be an area or areas where Mother Nature goes rogue and fouls up our nice and neat snowfall forecast map.
The first true nor’easter of the season is bringing snow along with strong coastal wind gusts to Massachusetts.
The first nor’easter of the season brought several inches of snow to many towns in Massachusetts.
A New Hampshire National Guard team is heading to New York to help communities getting hit by the incoming Nor’easter.
This will be more of a typical New England early winter-type storm – snow to the north and west and strong northeast winds at the coastline.
Outside of 495, there will be heavy, wet snow that may accumulate 1-to-3 inches.
If this trend continues and this nor’easter tracks well offshore this would be a good news-bad news situation.
The Nor’Easter will reach Cape Cod and the Islands around midday on Wednesday in the form of rain.
