Latest Forecast: How Much Snow Will Wellesley Get?
A winter storm warning and a wind advisory is in effect for Wellesley.
Although initial forecasts predicted mostly rain for the west-of-Boston area, Wellesley residents woke up to snow falling, but not necessarily accumulating this morning.
So, how much snow will Wellesley get?
Forecasters have said this will be a prolonged storm that will last throughout the day Thursday and into Friday morning. When all is said and done, the Wellesley area can expect 3-6 inches, according to WHDH.
In the WHDH Weather Blog, Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner says snow will be steady along and east of I-95. Areas west of I-95 will see more steady precipitation later today.
By tonight, Reiner says everyone can expect "widespread-steady snow."
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Wellesley area, which is in effect until 1 p.m. Friday. NWS says most of the snow accumulation will take place overnight tonight, making roads slick for the Thursday evening and Friday morning commutes.
The heavy, wet snow combined with high winds could mean scattered power outages for the area, NWS says.
