Natick and the Metrowest region is getting ready to hunker down for yet another winter storm. 

The region is currently in a winter storm warning, which isn't expected to be lifted until some time on Wednesday.

Here's what residents can expect, according to WHDH:

* Patchy light snow/flurries arriving 1-4pm with steadiest snow from 7pm tonight until 10am Wednesday. Poor travel is expected from 7pm until noon on Wednesday due to falling/drifting snow.

* Heaviest amounts focused on South Shore/Buzzards Bay/Cape/Islands with a foot of snow likely in those areas. Metro Boston plan on 8" of snow. 

* Snow will be light and fluffy which eliminates threat of widespread power loss BUT the powdery snow means significant blowing/drifting snow leading to poor visibility.

* Wind gust between 35-50 mph likely along coast with gusts between 20-35 mph well inland. This wind will create wind chills between -10 and -20 overnight and early Wednesday morning.

Once the storm exits, another arctic blast will strike the region for several days, with lows at or below 0.
