Region – It looks like we are also setting up for the snow equivalent of “death by a thousand cuts”, as beginning Saturday afternoon, central Massachusetts will come under the influence of at least two minor weather system that will bring snow our way during Saturday afternoon and again Sunday morning. There will also be a northeast wind throughout the period which will augment the snow from the two systems and will also cause snow to continue lightly during the period between the two minor systems. This will continue into Sunday night and while none of these events will be particularly noteworthy, they will be responsible for bringing accumulations of 5 to 10 inches to much of our region by then. Then, on Monday (what else) a more organized and important system will be forming off the southeast coast and will begin to move in our direction. There are still too many moving parts to this to predict a track with any certainty for this storm, but it does have the potential for a significant impact on much of the state of Massachusetts and could extend our snowy period into Tuesday afternoon..

Boston has already eclipsed their average ANNUAL snowfall by nearly 10 inches and winter is nowhere near done as yet.
