Meteorologists predict Wednesday’s storm will be quick and hard hitting. Glenn Field with the National Weather Service said the snow will hit around 4:00 am and start coming down hard during the morning commute, “maybe one to perhaps two inches per hour, for about four or five hours during that rush hour period,” said Field.
If the National Weather Service is correct, we’re just hours away from the first snowfall of the season.
The National Weather Service is forecasting snow showers to begin Monday and continue through tomorrow morning. Meteorologist Bill Simpson says an Arctic front is moving into southern New England.
"With that Arctic front there could be some snow showers. It won’t be accumulating but any time you have some snow showers with an Arctic front it could snow pretty hard for a short period of time – just enough to make the roads slippery," said Simpson.
