BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker issued the following statement regarding the winter storm expected to impact Massachusetts late tonight: ""After discussing the latest weather forecasts with representatives from MassDOT, MEMA, State Police and the MBTA, state government is planning for a regular work day Monday. We encourage everyone to take public transportation if possible, to drive carefully and anticipate a very difficult commute.
Commuters should be aware there is a parking ban in Boston starting at 6 AM and that several other cities are considering similar bans. Keep in mind this coming storm will have different impacts across the state and communities south of the Mass Pike could experience dangerously icy roads during the afternoon commute. As of now, the MBTA is planning to run a regular schedule for the entire transit system, but we will continue to monitor the storm and provide further updates if forecasts change. In closing, Go Pats!"
