"The snow consistency will be wet, regardless of where the heaviest falls. There will also be enough wind, combined with the wet snow, to pose concerns about scattered power outages," Cindy Fitzgibbon,StormTeam 5 meteorologist,said.

The storm also keeps shifting. It is now more east and will likely bring heavier snow to the Boston area and Cape Cod, which was originally expecting more rain, according to WCVB. Snow totals are still uncertain and StormTeam 5 meteorlogists will continue to look atmodelforecasts.
