Willa’s remnants create nasty weather in New England

The remnants of what used to be Hurricane Willa are creating a miserable weekend in Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire.

The National Weather Service said the storm has transformed into a nor’easter that’s going lash the region Saturday with rain, strong winds — and some snow and ice.

Winds could gust to 50 mph on the coast.

Meteorologist Andy Pohl says that for the most part it’s going to be a “cold, raw day” for the region with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. He said areas farther away from the coast could see some freezing rain and snow before the storm pushes out Saturday evening.

Emergency crews in Arlington are telling drivers to expect delays on Massachusetts Ave. as they work to clear fallen limbs in the town center.

Many more scenes like this are expected, as high winds whip across New England.
