Newswise — “The Northeast is about to be impacted by a major winter storm. Winter storm watches and warnings, as well as a blizzard watch, have been issued for this Friday into Saturday.
“The Boston National Weather Service is expecting accumulations of 18 to 24 inches for their forecast area, which includes Providence, R.I., and Hartford, Conn. This isn’t unheard of, but when was the last time these cities had so much snow in two days? The last time Boston had at least 18 inches was in 2010, the last time more than 20 inches fell was in 2005. Providence hasn’t had 18 or 20 inches over two days since 2005. Hartford, on the other hand, had 24 inches in a January 2011 snow event.”
