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.
The snow will begin as early as 1 p.m. on Tuesday. The first to see flakes would be areas well to the south, along the South Coast, Cape Cod and the Islands.
Boston received 15.1” of snow over the span of Thursday and Friday just beating out the old #5 storm.
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.
Gov. Deval Patrick said the state appears to have handled the Nor’easter well.
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.
