Bad news folks. Winter Storm Toby will arrive with snow Wednesday morning and is expected to deliver a heavy 8-10 inch pounding to much of the region. In addition to the pounding, Toby is expected to be blowing hard, especially near the coast, which can see it blowing 50 knots and could potentially lead to flooding before heading out to pound our neighbors to the north. Once again, there’s no way around it, our area is guaranteed to be coated in a wet sticky mess!
