Gov. sends state workers home ahead of storm

Posted: Updated:
Gov. Deval Patrick is sending home all non-emergency state workers and urging private employers to do the same ahead of a winter storm.
Patrick said Tuesday that the storm bearing down on Massachusetts is "stronger and faster" than initial predictions.
Forecasters say the storm late Tuesday and early Wednesday could drop a foot or more of snow in areas south of Boston and on Cape Cod, with six to 10 inches in the Boston area. Lower snowfall amounts are expected farther to the west and north in the state.
The snow will be accompanied by temperatures expected to drop into the single digits overnight. With wind gusts of about 35 miles per hour, it will feel much colder.
Patrick is also postponing his annual State of the State address Tuesday due to the weather.
