Boston’s first big snow of the season hit right in time for Halloween, now it looks like the second one is hitting right in time for the holidays!
We may have had some light snow showers this past Monday but those just were the appetizers for the heavier snow coming in later in the week. More snow is headed to Southern Mass tomorrow and is expected to hit the Boston area late Wednesday evening and last until Thursday afternoon.
And although not a proper Nor’easter, some areas will end up with more than a foot of snow outside their windows! But don’t worry, the snow will be nothing like the hard, heavy blizzard snow. In fact, by the sound of the NWS’ forecast, it looks like it might be a picturesque, fluffy snowfall — just the average December snow in New England.
The NWS has already issued a Winter Storm Watch for those areas which will see over 6 inches of snow, but the forecast can be subject to change.
The brunt of the snow is expected to fall between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. Thursday morning, with Boston getting between 6-12″ of snow, according to CBS Boston.
There’s also the potential for some gusty winds as well, but nothing too out of the ordinary. According to CBS, “they may not be strong enough for widespread power outages, however, the 40mph+ gusts lead of visibility issues.” To sum it up — It will be snowing sideways.
