Boston Braces For Heaviest Snowfall In Two Years As Nor'easter Approaches

Boston is gearing up for what meteorologists predict to be the most significant snowstorm in the city in two years as a powerful nor’easter looms over the region. National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham highlighted the impending snowfall, with forecasts indicating that Boston could see between 8 and 12 inches of snow, making it the most substantial snow event of the year.

The last instance of such heavy snowfall in Boston dates back to January 29, 2022, when the city was buried under nearly 2 feet of snow, recording a total of 23.6 inches, according to National Weather Service records.

Anticipated snow totals across Massachusetts are expected to be notably high, with projections pointing to heavy snowfall throughout the state on Tuesday. The speed of snowfall is likely to intensify, with rates reaching between 1 and 2 inches per hour, and potentially exceeding 3 inches per hour in certain areas, as per the National Weather Service.

While most regions of Massachusetts are expected to receive a foot or more of snow, exceptions include the northwest and southeast corners of the state, as well as the Cape and Islands. Even areas with lower predicted snow accumulations, such as Cape Cod, are set to face coastal hazards, including strong winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour and storm surges ranging from 1 to 2 feet, particularly on Tuesday morning.

A Winter Storm Warning blankets nearly the entire state in preparation for the impending nor’easter’s impact, urging residents to brace for potentially hazardous weather conditions.
