Up to a foot of snow expected to hit MA this week

Wednesday is the day to worry about.

A winter storm is expected to drop 7 to 10 inches of snow on the county from Tuesday morning to Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The first full day of spring, Wednesday, is expected to bring yet another nor'easter to Southern New England, the fourth of the month. "It could even be the biggest severe weather outbreaks of this year", he said.

The systems move off up the Eastern Seaboard late Wednesday. The storm will travel north, expected to hit the entire state in the afternoon. An upper-level trough will help trigger a surface low off the coast of the Carolinas, not too unlike what happened on March 12.

"Accumulating snow, enough to plow with a low risk for a period of 1-3" per hours snowfall rates. "There is the potential there for up to 5 inches". "This one will be a tough one to nail down, but we'll get there". It will be a pleasant day with highs near 50 degrees.

This causes the snow storms to set up in heavy bands of snow instead of more widespread snow showers. Also, the high angle of the sun in the sky could keep snow accumulations down during daytime, the NWS says. Snow tends to collect first on grass and exposed objects, much more stubbornly on bare ground and asphalt streets.

Bottom line, it's likely to be sloppy into Wednesday then sunnier until the weekend when a chance of rain could dampen Saturday fun.

Friday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 27. Tonight will bring increasing clouds with some light snow developing toward dawn south of the turnpike.

March snowfalls are nothing unusual.

"As far as accumulations, we are looking at a widespread 3-6" of snow for now, but be sure to check back for further forecasts over the next 2 days.
