When the last storm which hit the coast hard rolled in earlier this month, homeowners were given the green light by state officials to do whatever they needed to in order to protect their homes during the local emergency.
The good news: we can just about put this snowstorm in the books…
There will be a widespread 2-to-4 inches (at least) on the ground by Tuesday morning’s commute, just about everywhere. I expect lots of delays, cancellations and an extremely challenging morning drive.
Snow will move in between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Winter Storm Warnings and Watches have been issued for tonight through Tuesday.
Today will be sunny and cold as highs only hang near the middle 30s. Clouds will be taking over this evening ahead of this big winter storm…Winter’s last hurrah, literally! Tomorrow, the last full day of Winter, will look like a winter wonderland for most of us.
Why did we get so much more snow than expected Friday?
The major utilities in Massachusetts are reporting about 7,000 power outages Friday morning, most of them south of Boston.
By this evening skies will begin to clear out and winds will be dying down. Consequently, the evening commute won’t be as tough as this morning.
The storm will slowly wind down this afternoon as the storm departs to our east.
The town urged residents on the ocean to evacuate before the morning tide, the third in a series carrying high winds and seas.
