Locus Weather founder and owner Ken McKinley said Dec. 26 that coastal regions, particularly the peninsulas south of Rockland, should experience mixed precipitation, while inland areas may receive upward of a foot of snow.
McKinley said that snow should begin falling around 4 a.m., with a few inches accumulating by daybreak. Heavy precipitation will likely continue throughout the day and lessen by the evening, at which time many areas may experience a brief bout of rain.
According to McKinley, conditions will be quite windy, especially inland, where lightweight snow may be prone to drifting.
Travel conditions will be "poor," McKinley said, and power outages are possible.
