Snow on Tuesday Could Snarl Evening Commute

Mother Nature isn’t done with us yet.

The National Weather Service is predicting 3 to 7 inches of snow for Concord on Tuesday. 

The snow should start between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. with the worst of it hitting the area between noon and 6 p.m.

The storm will have a “significant impact” on the evening rush hour.

Snow should end between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The snowstorm is just the latest expected to hit the area after a very active two weeks of snow. Though it might seem like we’re having one of the worst winters yet, the 2013-14 winter doesn’t even rank in the Top 10 for Boston. 

We’ve seen about 53 inches of snow so far this year, which is more than an average winter in Boston, but still way below the record-setting 107.6 inches we saw in 1995-1996.

We still have a month-plus of potential snowstorms so it’s possible we may wind up in the Top 10. The 10th biggest snowfall was in 1919-20, which saw 73.4 inches.

Don’t forget that the April Fools' Day storm of 1997 brought 25.4 inches of snow to Boston, which shows that sometimes we have to wait until after Opening Day to stop worrying about snow.
