Boston snow total Tuesday predicted to be the highest in 2 years

Get ready, Boston. Tuesday’s snow storm is now predicted to be the heaviest snowfall the city has experienced in two years.

As of Monday morning, Boston is predicted to receive between 8 and 12 inches of snow.

“Right now, it will be the biggest snowstorm of the year,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham on Monday.

National Weather Service records for Boston indicate it will be even more significant than that. To get a snow total from a single storm higher than that, you need to go back to the winter of 2021-2022, when Boston was walloped by nearly 2 feet of snow on January 29, 2022.

The Boston reading that day was 23.6 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow totals are set to be high across the state, with the National Weather Service predicting heavy snowfall on Tuesday.

While the snowfall is expected to be relatively short in duration, there will be times when snow is falling at between 1 and 2 inches per hour, and in some areas possibly 3 or more inches per hour, the National Weather Service reported.
