Kim Ring Telegram & Gazette Staff @kimringtg WORCESTER – The city called off school for Tuesday ahead of a looming storm that could dump 12 to 18 inches of snow on the region.

The Worcester area is in line for 12 to 18 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service. The good news: Itll be easy to shovel and it is not expected to do a number on power lines.

“This wont be heavy, wet snow,” said Bob Thompson, a weather service meteorologist. “It will be a lighter consistency, and the impact on power wont be as much (as last week).”

Snow moved into Central Massachusetts Tuesday night and is expected to continue throughout Tuesday, tapering off late Tuesday, though slight snow and some snow showers could add to the accumulation.

The storm will bring wind, 30 to 40 mph strong, with heavier gusts at higher elevations like Worcester Regional Airport, he said.

In Worcester, the parking ban forbids parking on either side or main arteries, bus routes and downtown streets. Parking is allowed on the odd side of most other streets unless otherwise posted.

Public works crews in Worcester pre-treated roads Tuesday. The Department of Public Works and Parks noted there will be no trash collection Tuesday; pickup will be delayed a day for the rest of the week.

NO SCHOOL ALERT: Due to the inclement weather, there will be no school on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Head Start, before and after school activities and programs are also cancelled. All Administrative Offices will be closed to the public but open to employees.

Trash and Recycling in Worcester will be delayed by one day for the remainder of this week due to the winter storm on Tuesday, March 13th.
