Blizzard Warning Issued for Marblehead

White out conditions are expected as the storm intensifies.


What began as a blizzard watch for the Marblehead area has now been upgraded to a blizzard warning. 

The National Weather Service issued the warning for the majority of Eastern Massachusetts Thursday afternoon, as it anticipates about 2 feet of snow to descend upon the area Friday into Saturday.

"White out conditions are anticipated as roads become snow-covered by the Friday evening commute," the warning states. "Strong north-northeast winds are anticipated with gusts up to around 60 miles per hour, resulting in blowing and drifting of snow. Damage to trees and structures along with scattered power outages are anticipated."

Residents can expect the potential of snow falling at 3-to-4 inches per hour and wind gusts of more than 20 miles per hour.

Stay tuned for updates with the Marblehead Patch Storm Center.

Husbands: be considerate to your wife during this epic storm. Snow's heavy, so be sure to wax your wife's snow shovel or spray a little WD-40 on it to help keep it clear and clean of snow. I'm sure she'll thank you.
