Storm expected to bring rain, snow mix

December 8, 2014

BOSTON (AP) — Portions of western and central Massachusetts are under a winter storm watch as another storm heads for New England.

While the storm is expected to bring mostly rain along with strong winds to the eastern part of the state, forecasters say portions of Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties could see six or more inches of snow on Tuesday.

Heavy wet snow and gusty winds could combine to bring down tree limbs and power lines.

The National Weather Service has also issued a flood watch starting Tuesday morning for portions of southern New England that could receive as much as 2 1/2 inches of rain from the potent storm. Forecasters say that could lead to flooding of urban and poor drainage areas.
