Massachusetts Likely to Get ‘Significant’ Weekend Snowfall
Here in Mass, we're no strangers to wild winter weather, though this year seems a little different doesn't it? By now, we're typically trudging through several inches of snow to get to the parking garage or the local suds spot. Not this year though.
As a matter of fact, for this late into winter, this is one of the least snowiest (starts) to the season that the Plymouth Rock state has ever seen, but that could soon be changing in a big way.
According to WCVB, a large storm is likely to bring travel delays, accumulating snow and blustery conditions to the state later this weekend. The news station is reporting that the storm is likely to impact most of the state Saturday night through Sunday.
WCVB says that while widespread snow is expected with this system, exact snowfall amounts and what cities will see the most, is still yet to be determined. That's because following the exact track of this system has proved rather difficult.
The storm, which is currently moving through the southeastern United States, will work its way up the east coast before landing in New England on Saturday. And, while the storm will certainly be in the area on Saturday evening and night, it appears as though Massachusetts can expect the heaviest of precipitation to fall on Sunday during the day.
WCVB 5 Meteorologist, Cindy Fitzgibbon, said in part during her weather report,
"How much snow is going to come down to the track, and whether or not there is going to be some rain getting involved here. Water temperatures are in the low 40s, so there will be some mixing along the coast. There could be some rain on the Cape. The best chance of staying primarily snow with this one is going to be how far inland you are. When you factor in the wind on Friday morning, it will feel like single-digit wind chills, and that cold is going to be with us into Saturday ahead of our storm that comes in Saturday night".
