We are still a few weeks away from the official start of Winter (Saturday, December 21), but Mother Nature is bringing winter weather to the Northeast. A coastal low is producing strong winds and heavy snow. Many areas have already seen a foot of snow (click here for totals so far
) and more is on the way in New England today (Tuesday). Here is the very latest:
Winter weather alerts are in place across most of New England. Along with snow, strong wind gusts to 40 mph are creating blowing and drifting snow with reduced visibility.
The low will remain strong throughout the day producing snow and strong winds. As it slowly drifts away from the coast tonight (Tuesday), weather conditions will gradually improve. Dangerous seas and high waves will also be possible with this particular storm as seas could exceed 12 Feet.
From Boston to Bangor, more snow is ahead. In Maine, another 6" to 12" may fall by this evening (Tuesday). The snow will come to an end by Wednesday.
