BOSTON (CBS) – Tom Brady has his sights set on his seventh Super Bowl win next Sunday. As he competes in the warmth of Florida, Massachusetts will watch the game with another round of snow!
We have been following a wave of low pressure over the past few days. As of Friday morning, the system has shifted so far north that southern New England is on the way to being a minor to moderate cluster.
The first flakes are expected to arrive on Sunday noon. Expect the heaviest of tapes to roll through from 4pm to 8pm. This will be a fast moving system and should be completed before sunrise on Monday.
The accumulation depends strongly on where you live. For those in the northern plain of the state (Worcester Hills, Middlesex County, Essex County) 1 to 3 inches is likely.
The upper end of this range will bypass the greater Boston area and the south coast. From the I-95 corridor towards Buzzards Bay, many in Bristol and Plymouth counties will take up 2 to 4 inches.
The highest sums are expected for the Cape and the islands. Three to five inches for Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. Nantucket is expected to have the highest possible value at half a foot.
If you want to be out on the Super Bowl Sunday, you have to take this into account. Getting to your destination earlier in the day will make the journey easier.
At the end of the game, the piling up will lead to tough journeys, especially south of Boston. Monday morning is also likely to have a slower commute time.
