AUBURN, Mass. – The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Worcester County from Wednesday evening through late Thursday night, with some areas seeing as much as eight inches of snow.

The weather service predicts four to eight inches of snow accumulation with the possibility of sleet and freezing rain causing ice. The snow should begin falling around 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. Winds are expected to be blowing north 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

The anticipated weather will make for hazardous driving conditions, according to the weather service. Slippery conditions are anticipated for untreated surfaces. Driving visibility might get down to a ¼ mile or less.

Anyone traveling in the next 24 to 36 hours should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to modify travel plans should winter weather develop.

Al Gore was right! Manmade global warming is now in effect. we will only get a dusting and then warm rain


2 days and no new news...that is impressive. every other news source on the planet has new stories except this one. just like on Saturdays and Sundays with the voice, nothing seems to happen.


I am really scared to travel in such a weather. Snow is everywhere and so it is extremely prone to accident these days.
