Nor’easter brings strong winds, up to 18 inches with snow in parts of Mass. – Boston News, Weather, Sports
A nasty Nor’easter is expected to bring damaging winds and up to 18 inches of heavy, wet snow to communities in parts of Massachusetts this week.
The storm system moves into the region on Monday. By the end of Tuesday, much of New England will be under a fresh layer of snow suitable for plowing.
The storm begins Monday evening with light showers, typically after 10 p.m., and gradually increases in intensity into Tuesday morning.
Snow is likely to arrive around midnight in locations in northern and central Worcester County, and early Tuesday morning in locations in Metro West and North Shore.
Due to the late changeover to snow in the Boston area, Tuesday morning commutes are looking better than evening as most areas are expected to have some snow on the roads.
Some snow will move across the south coast on Tuesday evening before the storms clear. A few isolated snow showers will continue into Wednesday morning, but the strongest impact of the storm will have passed.
The storm is expected to bring 1 to 3 inches to communities along the coast; 3-6 inches to I-495 corridor and portions of Western Mass; 6 inches to 1 foot for the Worcester Hills and higher elevations of western Massachusetts; and a 12- to 18-inch jackpot for some cities in north-central Worcester County and the Berkshires.
The strongest wind gusts are expected Tuesday afternoon, with gusts up to 65 miles per hour possible. The northeast wind is also likely to cause power outages and minor flooding, with isolated moderate flooding on some northeast-facing beaches.
