Latest Winter Storm Update from ABC6
We're not seeing any snow out there yet...but the afternoon and evening commutes could be very hairy, according to Chelsea Priest from ABC6.
If you're local here on the Southcoast, you can expect the snow to start to move in within the next couple hours.
However, Chelsea Priest from ABC6 says that this storm is on the weaker side compared to the last three Nor'Easters. Since the temps are in the upper 30's, the accumulation will take a bit longer to build up and we actually won't see any sticking on the pavement until later this evening and overnight. The accumulation prediction is still in that 4-8 inch range, with the heaviest snow falling overnight and lingering into tomorrow morning and early afternoon.
Much like the last storms, the higher winds are a concern. ABC6 says we could see 45-55 mph gusts with higher further winds the further east you go, particularly on the Cape and the Islands.
As you can imagine, this will be heavy, wet snow that will make clearing it a pain so expect to have enough snow fall overnight that the morning might be messy. And since the snow will continue overnight and into the morning, Chelsea is not ruling out some closings or delays tomorrow.
