Nor’easter to blast Massachusetts: ‘A surge of very heavy snow’ on the way

A powerful nor’easter with heavy bursts of snow is set to descend upon Massachusetts and the rest of southern New England on Wednesday.
More than a foot of snow is possible in pockets of the Bay State, according to meteorologists who predict the first flakes will fly in the 7 to 9 p.m. window and last through late Thursday morning.
The significant winter storm has triggered a Winter Storm Warning. The nor’easter is expected to dump 8 to 12 inches for most of Massachusetts. Travel will be difficult with snow-packed roads, especially during the Thursday morning commute.
“My best advice is people need to prepare for our first widespread event of the season,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson. “People need to prepare for mid-winter conditions.”
Drivers should plan for extra time during their Wednesday evening commute and slow down when out on the roads, he added.
“Driving Thursday morning will be challenging,” Simpson said.
Motorists are expected to face hazardous conditions, and people are being urged to stay off the roads.
“MA is expected to see significant impacts from this first winter storm of the season beginning tomorrow night and continuing into Thursday,” Gov. Charlie Baker tweeted. “Be prepared and avoid travel during heavy snowfall.”
An initial burst of snow could drop 1 to 2 inches per hour, significantly affecting visibilities, said Greg Postel, hurricane and storm expert at The Weather Channel.
“It could come down very hard and very quickly,” he said. “A surge of very heavy snow.”
The storm forecast became “snowier” on Tuesday when the track of the storm shifted north, Postel said.
“We are seeing late changes in some of the guidance, moving the scenarios quite a bit,” he said.
