Snowstorm Will Have 'High Impact' on Tuesday Morning Commute
Another winter storm is headed our way, with the forecast calling for snowfall through the Tuesday morning commute.
Mother Nature is making sure winter will last until the bitter end this year.
On the last full day of winter Tuesday, forecasters are calling for several inches of accumulating snow - and possibly more - starting late Monday night and last into Tuesday morning.
The storm will make driving "treacherous" late Monday night into Tuesday morning, with a "high impact on the Tuesday morning commute," according to the National Weather Service. Additionally, "travel will be slow at best on well treated surfaces and quite difficult on any unplowed or untreated surfaces."
The forecast for Salem calls for between 2 and 4 inches of snow.
"The final snowfall totals will be determined by the timing of the transition from all snow to mixed precipitation," the weather service said.
WHDH-TV meteorlogist Jeremy Reiner said the snow will not begin until at least 11 p.m. in his latest blog entry. By mid-morning, the snow will changeover to a "mix of snow, sleet and rain" and "and just plain rain for the immediate coast by noon."
Regardless of the form of precipitation, the storm will last through the day.
"The storm will be with us for the day, not tapering off until mid evening," Reiner said.
