Shrewsbury business bracing for weather impact this week

From Spring to Snow: Central Massachusetts Braces for Another Winter Blast

Worcester, Massachusetts is bracing for a possible storm that could bring up to 8 inches of snow this Wednesday. Spring has already arrived in Shrewsbury, with chirping birds and longer days signaling its arrival. However, meteorologists are predicting that parts of Central Massachusetts could be hit with winter weather once again.

At Papa’s Hardware, owner Fred Betti is preparing for the incoming storm. The store has been receiving shipments of flowers for spring, but they will now have to be put back inside due to the expected snow. Instead, Betti will be putting out winter gear like shovels and ice melt, of which there is plenty in stock.

The National Weather Service forecasts a mix of snow and rain starting on Wednesday morning, with Worcester possibly seeing 1 to 2 inches of snow by the evening. A winter storm watch has been issued for Northern Worcester County, with predictions of heavy wet snow and sleet accumulating up to 4 inches, with 8 inches near the New Hampshire border.

Despite the frustrating prospect of winter weather in the spring, Betti is prepared for whatever Wednesday brings. With a delivery of cold-tolerant crops coming in, he is making sure to protect the plants from harsh weather conditions. While the changing seasons have presented challenges, Betti remains optimistic that warmer weather will soon arrive.
