National Severe Weather Preparedness Week

NOAA and FEMA mark National Severe Weather Preparedness Week from March 3 to March 9. Prepare an emergency supply kit, sign up for severe weather alerts, and share warnings and plans with your peers; it could save your life! Primary threats in Massachusetts include floods, severe thunderstorms, blizzards, hurricanes, and tornadoes. For more information, visit the National Weather Service website.

This week, expect scattered showers and overcast skies, with strong winds. Temperatures will hover just above freezing most days, and so far models do not predict any serious snow accumulation.
