NEW: Winter Storm Coming for Worcester Co and Central MA
Monday, December 24, 2012
The National Weather Service’s hazardous weather outlook indicates that light snowfall with a broad swath of one to two inches is likely tonight and into early Tuesday.
According to the NWS, a second and stronger storm will likely affect the region later Wednesday and into Thursday. While plenty of uncertainty remains, experts expect a milder system and feature more in the way of wet weather.
The best chance of significant accumulations will be found across Southwest New Hampshire and Northwest Massachusetts. There is also a low probability of damaging winds along the coast and perhaps some minor coastal flooding and beach erosion on the Eastern Massachusetts coast.
The NWS expect a Christmas day with high temperatures near 35 and Northern winds of 3 to 8 mph. The chance of precipitation is 80% and new snow and sleet accumulation of less than one inch is possible.
