Finally! Winter Storm Watch Issued for Wellesley
Could residents actually have to shovel snow this week?
Hope you didn't put away that shovel just yet.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday that calls for 3-5 inches of snow for Norfolk County, including Wellesley.
Temperatures right around freezing for most of the weather event will make a wintry mix of snow and sleet, however if temperatures dip a bit, the NWS states Wellesley could receive even more snow.
A mix of sleet and snow will make for slippery roadways, so drivers should use extreme caution on the roads - particularly if they didn't listen to Punxsutawney Phil and took off the snow tires.
The heaviest precipitation is expected late Wednesday into early Thursday morning.
Wind gusts could get as high as 20 mph, according to NWS.
The watch is effective through Thursday afternoon.
