The National Weather Service’s Boston branch has issued a Winter Storm Warning for most of southern New England ahead of the storm. It will be in effect from Wednesday at 7PM until Thursday at 1PM.

Snow will be heavy at times overnight, with rates as high as 1-2 inches an hour, before tapering off by Thursday afternoon. If you must travel it is being recommended that you keep an extra flashlight, food, & water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.

In addition to the heavy snowfall there will be strong wind gusts with the approaching storm, particularly along the coast (35-45 mph) and the Cape and Islands (50-60 mph). This may result in isolated power outages. Please check the National Grid Power Outage map by clicking here if you experience any issues.
