The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for most of Massachusetts, including Tewksbury, lasting from 9 PM tonight until 1 AM Tuesday.
Heavy snowfall is expected, beginning around 2 AM and falling at a rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour early Monday morning. The storm is likely to affect the Monday morning rush hour. The snow may mix with or change to sleet sometime around midday. A total of 8 to 12 inches is expected.
Hazardous travel is also expected due to snow covered roads and low visibility. Northeast winds predicted to come at 5 to 15 MPH, with gusts up to 35 MPH.
According to the National Weather Service:
“A WINTER STORM WARNING IS ISSUED WHEN AN AVERAGE OF 6 OR MORE
INCHES OF SNOW IS EXPECTED IN A 12 HOUR PERIOD...OR FOR 8 OR MORE
INCHES IN A 24 HOUR PERIOD. TRAVEL WILL BE SLOW AT BEST ON WELL
TREATED SURFACES...AND QUITE DIFFICULT ON ANY UNPLOWED OR
It has only been a week since the storm that brought more than two feet of snow to most areas of Massachusetts, and Tewksbury has put a considerable amount of effort into cleaning up the aftermath. While this storm isn't predicted to be as severe as the last, it seems as though this winter is going to keep Tewksbury city workers quite busy.
