Marblehead May See Up to 7 Inches of Snow by Morning Commute

Snow is expected to blanket the area, Monday afternoon or evening and last through the night, accumulating 3-7 inches by Tuesday morning.

A snow storm may be headed for Marblehead Monday afternoon and leave up to 7 inches of heavy snow in its wake before tomorrow's morning commute.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch, forecasting 4-6 inches of snow as temperatures drop to the low 20s with 15-25 mph winds and gusts up to 40 mph.

Meanwhile, the local forecast for Marblehead says 3-7 inches.

"There is still some uncertainty on the amounts, which will depend on the exact track of the [storm]," says the Weather Service.

If the storm does blanket the Marblehead area, snow is expected to arrive late this afternoon or early evening and continue through the night.

Marblehead may at first see snow showers for the afternoon, turning into heavy snow tonight.

Snowfall should taper off tomorrow morning, but another 1-3 inches are predicted for Marblehead. Visibility on the roads may be down to a half mile at times.

"Untreated roads will become snow covered and slippery tonight. The Tuesday morning rush hour may be impacted," says the Weather Service.
