Mayor Walsh and Gov. Patrick prep for another major storm

Posted: Updated:
DORCHESTER, Mass. (WHDH) - Snow crews are preparing for another blast of winter weather across much of the state.

Wednesday will be the third major snowstorm of the new year and the second for Boston’s new mayor, Marty Walsh.

"We had a conference call this morning at 9 a.m. and we’re keeping track of where the storms are coming from. [In my first storm I learned] not to listen to the criticism, just to make a plan, follow the plan and move forward with our plan,” Walsh said.

As snow preparation began across the state Gov. Deval Patrick voiced his concern.

"It looks like it's going to be a significant storm. More challenging than some because it could be wet snow as it's forecast,” Patrick said.

That heavy, wet snow is also a big concern at Logan Airport.

"This is going to be a storm that's going to be a little but more challenging than normal storms, I’d rather see 17 inches of light fluffy snow than 8-10 inches of wet heavy wet snow,” Director of MassPort Ed Freni said.

MassPort officials said more than 60 crew members will be helping get planes off the ground.

Conservative estimates have 25 percent of Wednesday’s flights already canceled, but the airport is expected to remain open.

School in Boston and other cities and towns across the state, however, will be closed.
