Last-Day-Of-Winter Storm To Cause Tough Commute
Region expecting 2 to 4 inches of snowfall in the forecast, switching to rain around mid-morning.
A late winter storm making its way through the Wakefield area will drop about 2 to 4 inches of snow before switching to a wintry mix and rain, according to Channel 7 weather in Boston.
"Now I know what you're thinking. Does 2-4 really mean 12-18? No, no, no. We have this storm in-hand. We've analyzed this frontwards, backwards, upside down, sideways and diagonally. I'll leave it at that," wrote Channel 7 Meteorologist Pete Bouchard in his weather blog.
Meanwhile, a winter storm warning from the National Weather Service will remain in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday evening. The National Weather Service calls for 3 to 5 inches of snowfall on Tuesday, with wind gusts that could reach as high as 36 mph.
Snow is likely to continue until 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to the NWS, while Wednesday, the first day of spring, is expected to see partly cloudy skies and highs around 40.
