Spring nor'easter: Boston area likely to miss spring storm

A spring nor'easter could drop feet of snow in the Boston area this week but a change in the storm's track has caused a change in the forecast. On March 22, AOL reported that the storm had a lot of potential but on March 24, local news stations here in Massachusetts are reporting otherwise.

"Right now, in terms of storm positioning, it doesn't look like the perfect set-up. At this time, it appears that most of us get a glancing shot from this storm as the core of the storm stays just offshore," says Chris Lambert from WHDH. Most people in Massachusetts will see about 1" with a 1"-3" shading in SE Mass., 3"-6" on the Cape, and 6"+ on the outer Cape.

A spring nor'easter isn't something that anyone is looking forward to at this point. It was an extremely cold winter and everyone is ready for spring -- it is spring right?! Fortunately for many in Massachusetts, this storm won't do much damage and with 60 degree weather possible over the weekend, the snow will be g-o-n-e before Monday. That said, there is always a possibility that we could get slammed -- you never really can rule anything out in New England!

"While signs are encouraging for a glancing shot, and not a direct hit for most of us, I'd still keep an eye on it. With a storm this powerful, it's a high stakes game," Lambert concluded.

Would you welcome a spring nor'easter? Are you sick of the snow?
