SEMA: Commutes could be ugly Tues night and Wed morning

Southborough Emergency Management is sharing an alert about the forecast snow for Tuesday night. The warning about hazardous driving conditions also points out the weather’s impact on traffic tomorrow night and Wednesday morning. Whether you’ll be commuting or picking up/dropping off kids, you may want to think ahead.

On a scale of snow fall for our area, the storm Tuesday/Wednesday will rank on the average end at 4-6”. HOWEVER… on a scale of impacts, it will rank very high.

Once snow arrives around 4pm, it will intensify rapidly with snow rates of 1”-2” per hour between 5pm – 7pm. After 7pm, will depend on the infiltration of warmer air. We may stay all snow or change over to sleet or possibly freezing rain. In any case, travel will be difficult, if not hazardous, all night and possibly into the Wednesday morning commute.

Please plan ahead for tomorrow and keep in mind that traffic will be a bear if everyone in the state decides to leave work early.

Attached is a timeline graphic – it is an estimation only, do not consider it as exact timing.
