Whiteout Conditions Expected Overnight

Worst of the Blizzard of 2013 expected during the overnight hours.

Nearly a foot of snow — or more — has fallen, but the worst is yet to come.

Sudbury will feel the full fury of The Blizzard of 2013 during the overnight hours as whiteout and blizzard conditions bury eastern Massachusetts.

WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard says on his blog:

Overnight and early Saturday morning. Travel is nearly impossible. White-outs, blizzard conditions, drifting snow and a vicious wind.

Winds will gust near hurricane force (74mph or better) at times along the coast as the storm rounds Nantucket and heads east.

10am high tide is more of a concern because of the intense wind. Sandwich, Plymouth, Scituate and Cape Ann will experience MAJOR coastal flooding. Moderate flooding is expected in Revere, Hull, Nantucket Harbor, Marshfield, Hingham and Chatham East.

Final Act

Storm starts to pull away mid/late morning. We can start to talk about the end game by midday as the back edge of the snow starts to work into Greater Worcester. I still think we'll see accumulating snow throughout the early part of the afternoon, but after 3pm, the storm may breath its last breath. Granted, the snow may shut down, but the wind will continue even as the skies clear. Blowing and drifting will be issues through early Sunday.

Sudbury Patch will continue updates throughout the day on Saturday.
