Blizzard Watch Upgraded to Warning for JP

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for JP effective 7 p.m. Saturday. The Nor'easter is expected to bring another 10-14 inches of snow and produce whiteout conditions. The weather agency had previously issued a blizzard watch. The city has seen 78 inches of snow dumped on it in 2015. We're an inch shy of the snowiest month in Boston history, according to the National Weather Service.
