TAUNTON – At 7:13 this morning, March 13, the National Weather Service increased the predicted snow totals for Framingham from about a foot of snow to 12 to 18 inches of snow.
A winter storm warning remains in effect through 8 p.m. tonight.
This is the third nor’easter to hit MetroWest in the last two weeks.
School and municipal offices are closed in the City of Framingham.
The national weather service said “blizzard conditions” are possible. Blizzard watches and warning have already been issued for coastal communities in the Commonwealth.
Travel will be very difficult. 1 to 3 inch per hour snowfall rates are possible at times along with blowing and drift snow during the morning commute.
The afternoon commute is also expected to be impacted. Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times. Wet snow and strong winds will result in some power outages and tree damage.
Eversource reminded customers to charge all electronics in case of a power outage, and to keep a flashlight handy.
