Why did we get so much more snow than expected Friday?
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.
Please take this storm threat seriously, especially if you are a coastal resident…you should begin to make preparations immediately
This storm is going to continue to strengthen over the coming days and become an absolute monster once it hits the Atlantic Ocean off of Virginia early Wednesday morning.
Here are my top ten reasons why you should turn that winter frown upside-down and rejoice that March is here.
There is snow in the forecast for some areas, but not all of them.
Not only do we have more snow on the way in less than 48 hours, but temperatures following our next snow event are going to be near or below normal for the foreseeable future.
If you are aching to get out and shovel, you can get started now, but there may be another inch or two by the time it all ends later.
