Another winter storm on the horizon just hours after power is restored to many Mass. communities

Another winter storm is expected to hit New England Wednesday just hours after power was restored to communities across Massachusetts.

The storm is expected to begin between noon and 3 p.m. and then intensify throughout the afternoon and into the evening hours.

Similar to the last two storms, communities along the coast are projected to get a coating to less than an inch of snow, cities and towns south and east of I-495 are expected to get 1 to 3 inches, and the Worcester hills and parts of western Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont will get 3 to 6 inches.

The snow will come down steadiest during the evening commute before turning into a soaking rain from south to north overnight. With bursts of steadier snow developing in the early evening, there will likely be some slick travel, especially across the interior, where temps hover near freezing.

Snow flips to rain around 6 p.m. along the south coast, by 8-9 p.m. along the Mass Pike, and by 11 p.m. in southern NH. Most areas are expected to dry out by 8 a.m. Thursday and remain clear through the weekend.

A coastal flood advisory is in place along parts of the south coast of New England for Wednesday night’s high tide and a flood watch is up for Boston, south, through Southeast Mass .A wind advisory is in effect too for coastal Southeast Mass for gusts to 50mph.
