Another week, another March nor’easter set to deliver huge impacts to one city in particular.
Boston, Massachusetts is under a Winter Storm Warning, with high winds and major snow is expected on Tuesday and lasting into early Wednesday.
First, the forecast: Snow accumulations are expected to total 10 to 18 inches in metro Boston, with some locally higher amounts possible. This will be combined with winds up to 65 miles-per-hour (MPH) in the area, leading to high drifting and blowing of snow. The snow will taper down to light snow showers on Tuesday night, with leftover snow showers through much of Wednesday, although the main accumulations are expected on Tuesday.
Winds and coastal flooding will both also be major hazards, as blizzard warnings are in place for Cape Ann and Cape Cod, just outside of Boston. Boston Public Schools are closed on Tuesday as well.
A parking ban is in effect for the city starting Monday night at 7pm ET. Free and discounted parking at city garages will be available, according to the Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh. Boston’s Logan Airport is bracing for widespread cancellations on Tuesday and Wednesday, and airlines are lifting change fees for anyone trying to get out before the storm begins.
Boston’s largest snow event this winter was a 13.4″ snow on January 4th, and this storm could easily top that. With 42.3″ of snow so far this winter, this storm will almost certainly push Boston’s seasonal total above the seasonable average of 43.8″.
