TAUNTON – The National Weather Service has upgraded the winter storm watch to a warning, this morning, March 12.
The latest nor’easter – the second in two weeks – could deliver up to 10-15 inches of snow to MetroWest, including Framingham.
The storm is expected to start after 11 p.m. tonight and last until 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 13.
The good news is the snow is not supposed to be the heavy, wet snow that caused as much as 35% of Framingham to be without power last week.
Travel will be very difficult to impossible, including the morning commute on Tuesday and possibly the evening commute on Tuesday.
Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times.
Snow could fall as much as 1-3 inches per hour, at times.
A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
