Storm Moving into Waltham Area Tonight

The winter storm packed quite a punch down in the South; but what does it mean for Waltham?

The large winter storm that dropped inches of snow in the South is now headed towards the Northeast, although little snow accumulation is expected in Waltham.

According to the National Weather Service's latest forecast, several inches of snow are expected to fall in the western part of the state tonight, but with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees in Waltham, the snow is expected to change over to rain or icy rain after midnight. 

According to the WHDH 7Weather Blog, the snow will start tonight between 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. and quickly turn to rain in the Boston area.

Although there will be little accumulation, drivers should be cautious as roads could get icy. 

Rain and snow is likely Thursday before 9 p.m., but accumulation will be minimal, the National Weather Service says.

The National Weather Service has issued both a hazardous weather outlook and a high wind watch for the Waltham area Wednesday night into Thursday. Winds heading northeast could reach 40 mph with gusts up to 55 mph, with potential to bring down power lines.

"Winds of this magnitude could down trees and tree limps, power lines and holiday decorations," the advisory reads. "Numerous power outages and minor property damage is possible." 

More snow is expected to move into the region over the weekend, but forecasters differ on how big a storm it could become.

I was on the phone with my daughter around 5:30pm and her husband called to her and wanted her outside real fast. Well, she said Mom, this is unbelievable!!! up in the sky are two huge red fireballs traveling side by side at an extreme speed. She came back into her home to get her cell to take a picture but they had disappeared behind the trees. Any other siting of comets this eve? This happened in Waltham,Ma
