With a winter weather watch to take effect at 2 a.m. on March 20, a wintery mix is expected to begin to fall beginning Tuesday night, changing to all snow. Teal=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory.

AMOUNTSAt the moment, we are seeing anywhere from a dusting to over six inches of snow. "Snowfall accumulations at this time are with very low confidence". New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

The National Weather Service in Taunton handles weather forecasts for much of Southern New England, including MA counties east of the Berkshires. Before that, a storm dropped heavy, wet snow in areas west of Interstate 95 and left one person dead in NY state.

Precipitation is possible throughout the day on Wednesday.

Wednesday night: Rain and snow likely before 8 p.m., then a chance of snow between till 2 a.m.




As far as travel impact, the Wednesday morning commute looks okay, but there could be significant impacts to the Wednesday afternoon/evening commute.

There's little doubt in my mind now that we're going to see a "hit" from this second Wednesday storm. Widespread power outages may develop Wednesday with northeast to north winds gusting 25 to 35 miles per hour at times. Tides in Boston are forecast around 10.5 feet, Brink said.

Wind gusts from the north-northeast could gusts to 50mph, especially at the coast.
