Storm brings wind, snow, freezing rain to Mass.
BOSTON (AP) -- The first true nor'easter of the season is bringing snow along with strong coastal wind gusts to Massachusetts.
National Weather Service meteorologist Nicole Belk says Wednesday the storm will dump two to four inches of snow in western and central Massachusetts, and suburban areas west and north of Boston. The South Shore could get freezing rain.
The speed limit was reduced on the Massachusetts Turnpike Wednesday afternoon from the New York state line to Westborough.
A high-wind warning is in effect for Cape Cod and neighboring islands until Wednesday night for 60 mph gusts. A wind advisory is in effect for Boston and western Massachusetts for gusts up to 50 mph. About 7,700 power outages were reported Wednesday on the South Shore and Cape Cod.
Rain is forecast by Thursday with temperatures in the upper 30s and 40s.
