New England and the mid-Atlantic brace for a powerful Nor'easter, a spring snowstorm like no other, claim forecasters. The wind will whip up and the snow will fly as a power packed low pressure system develops, according to the Boston Herald on March 24.
Even as this storm is only a day away, the predictions for snow are still hinging on the track this storm will take. If the storm stays far out in the Atlantic, the coast will see the majority of the snowfall, but if it tracks more towards shore, then the storm will bring the snows inland, according to Fox News live on Monday evening.
The Massachusetts and Maine shorelines look to be the bull’s-eye when it comes to snow totals. This means the Cape and the islands will get hit hard. If the storm comes closer to shore, this could be one monster storm for the inland areas.
Windy and cold conditions are expected throughout New England. The storm is expected to start Tuesday evening and go through the day on Wednesday. Expect closings and delays in both work, school and travel.
The height of the storm is expected for morning rush hour on Wednesday, bringing another commuting nightmare, just what this area has seen all winter long. This spring snow storm is not unique. Last year in April Boston saw two-inches of snow, but it was back in 2007 when Boston was blanketed with almost two-feet of snow. Spring is here, but no one has told Mother Nature.
The only good thing about a whopper of a spring snowstorm is that the snow won’t stay around too long! Either way the storm tracks, Boston the Cape and the Islands are going to get walloped with this event.
