25 Best Snow Day Food & Drink Specials in Boston

Brace yourself Boston, we’ve got another winter storm watch coming and this one looks like it might actually pack some punch. As of Monday morning, Boston is predicted to receive between eight and 12 inches of snow on Tuesday.

How much snow is Boston getting?

It’s looking to be the biggest snowstorm of the year, and the biggest since the winter of 2021-2022, when Boston was walloped by nearly two feet of snow on January 29, 2022. Most of the state is looking at a foot or more of snow, excepting, as always, the northwest corner of the state, the southeastern corner of the state, and the Cape and Islands.
