Shrewsbury Business Gears Up for Weather Impact This Week

Winter’s Last Gasp: Shrewsbury Prepares for Upcoming Storm as Spring Arrives

As winter gives way to spring, Shrewsbury is experiencing longer days and the chirping of birds. However, meteorologists predict that parts of Central Massachusetts could receive up to 8 inches of snow as a storm moves in on Wednesday.

Fred Betti, owner of Papa’s Hardware, is preparing for the upcoming storm by putting out winter gear like shovels and ice melt. The store had received shipments of spring flowers, but with the expected snow, they will have to stay inside. Betti is also expecting a delivery of cold-tolerant crops on Wednesday, which he hopes will bring some warmth to his store during the harsh weather.

The National Weather Service forecasts a mix of snow and rain starting Wednesday morning, with Worcester likely seeing 1 to 2 inches of snow by evening. A winter storm watch has been issued for Northern Worcester County from Wednesday morning to Thursday evening, with total snow and sleet accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, potentially up to 8 inches near the New Hampshire border.

Betti mentioned that he has been keeping an eye on the weather forecasts closely and is taking all necessary precautions to ensure that his store is ready for any eventuality. He hopes that the storm will pass quickly and that spring will finally make its presence known in Shrewsbury soon.
