If a winter storm is going to affect at least 2 million people or 400,000 square kilometers then the storm gets a name. The latest to be named is Olympia which is scheduled to hit our area late this afternoon. The storm will start out as snow and then change to ice and eventually all rain.
We should only get an inch or two before the snow changes to ice for a short time and then quickly we get all rain.
Once the rain starts it will become heavy at times, Tuesday will be a rainy and windy day for those of us here in eastern Massachusetts. Hard to believe that yesterday we were freezing with temperatures below zero and tomorrow temperatures will be in the 50s.
Our next chance at seeing some snow isn't until Friday February 26th. That is over a week away.
