Southborough Emergency Management Director Neal Aspesi says the National Weather Service has changed the forecast for today, and that means some good news and some bad news for us. Here’s his update:
Colder air will persist for a longer duration than originally forecast. This will result in a longer duration of snow and a scientifically longer duration of sleet & freezing rain (ice). Change over to all rain is still possible for late today.
While less rain will lesson the potential for flooding and exacerbated snow (from previous storm) weights, it will increase the potential for downed trees and power lines and hazardous travel. Due to the large forecasted area for icing, power outages/repairs could be out/take significant time.
We are monitoring the forecast and have taken steps to review our special populations and sheltering plans. The Southborough CERT/MRC is in the process of creating a roster of available volunteers, if needed
Has anyone been out on the roads? How are things out there?
