The winter storm watch has been issued and now MassDOT is asking everyone to stay home if they can.

The snow is expected to come down fast and furious on Thursday and if you don't have to leave the house, MassDOT says to stay off the roads.

Schools are already closed and many business are following suit, so if you have the day off, pick a good show or two and get ready to hunker down until the winter weather passes through and crews can clear the roads.
