Blizzard Forecast for Shrewsbury
We could see more than two feet of snow.
If you've been talking about what a calm winter we've had, you've spoken too soon.
Just a couple days after the 35th anniversary of the Blizzard of '78, New England is expected to get a blizzard (dubbed "Nemo" by the Weather Channel) this weekend. Central Massachusetts could see more than two feet of snow, the largest snow accumulation since 2010.
"We could see snow falling at three- to four-inches per hour and wind gusts of more than 20 miles per hour," said Jim Arnold, weather specialist with Shrewsbury Emergency Management Agency. "I can’t emphasize enough that this storm is the real deal and must be taken very seriously, as the failure to do so could result in a potential life threatening situation for possible victims and first responders."
“I think it's time to prepare for the biggest storm since December 26th and 27th of 2010,” WHDH-TV chief meteorologist Pete Bouchard writes in his latest blog post. “For the snow hounds, your ship might have finally come in.”
