Storm makes its way across Massachusetts

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - A storm that could drop a foot or more of snow in some places is hammering Massachusetts.

The snow hit western portions of the state in the pre-dawn hours Wednesday and arrived in Boston just in time for the morning commute.

Six to 12 inches of snow is expected around Boston, with 3 to 6 inches in southeastern areas before changing to sleet and rain. Higher elevations in western Massachusetts could see up to 15 inches.

Many communities including Boston, Worcester and Springfield, closed schools.

The state's utilities say they are preparing for the possibility of more power outages than in earlier storms this winter, because Wednesday's snow is expected to be the wet and heavy type that weighs down power lines and tree limbs. Outages were minimal midmorning.
