Storm to dump several inches of snow Wednesday

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Watch Monday for most of MA and Southern New England, with the fourth nor'easter of the month set to hit the region this week.

A winter weather advisory is possible, forecasters said.

Adding to the situation is an abundance of cold air available to turn any precipitation into snow, said Gary Best, a meteorologist at Hometown Forecast Services Inc.in Nashua, New Hampshire. An initial mix of rain and snow may melt as it hits the pavement, keeping roads wet, but as we flip to all snow in most spots and the intensity of the snow increases, roads would have the potential to become slushy and snow covered.

California has a couple days break in between storm systems. This high pressure system is there for much of the winter and, rather than move eastward as most weather systems do, it moves north and south. Across the 95 corridor and in Philadelphia proper, we are looking at a slushy 4 to 8 inches of snow possible, with a chance for a locally higher amount if happen to be in a community where one of the heavier snow bands sets up.

Some forecasts had been calling for a significant snow fall event in the Northeast by Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.

Moderate flooding is also expected along the coast with Wednesday night's high tide.

Motorists should plan on hard travel conditions with the possibility of significant reductions in visibility, according to a weather service statement. Snow tends to accumulate faster in rural areas and higher elevations than in urban areas and lower elevations.

There's little doubt in my mind now that we're going to see a "hit" from this second Wednesday storm.

The snow's weight will likely mean more trees and power lines falling, causing outages throughout the area, Simpson said. Tides in Boston are forecast around 10.5 feet, Brink said.

A break in the precipitation on Tuesday night, or maybe not.

The wind will gust up to 40 miles per hour, with the strongest winds along the east coast of MA, according to forecasters.

After the snow ends, we'll warm back up into the 40s and 50s for highs the rest of the week, quickly melting any leftover snow, which is usually what happens in mid to late March.
