The timing of the storm is eerily reminiscent of last year’s blizzard which dumped approximately almost 3 feet of snow in Bridgewater Jan. 23 to Jan. 24. This year, however, temperatures and the storm track have meteorologist predicting a high wind rain event.

The winds are expected to cause significant power outages due to downed tree limbs and power-lines. The BReeze will continue to monitor the storm and provide updates when they are made available.
