From Plum Island to the Cape, residents are bracing for a long-duration storm expected to bring snow, rain, wind and flooding.
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.
This storm is a long duration event lasting 36-to-48 hours total.
From Newbury to Scituate, residents are bracing for a long-duration storm with the threat of major beach erosion and coastal flooding.
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.
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.
There is snow in the forecast for some areas, but not all of them.
A Winter Storm Watch is in place north and west of 495, which will most likely be upgraded to a warning later today.
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.
Skies will be cloudy this morning followed by peeks of sun this afternoon. Highs will be around 40.
