BOSTON (CBS) – The slow and steady snowstorm that began Thursday continues through Friday and ends across Massachusetts on Saturday morning.
Friday will be a tough, drawn-out day. While these are not groundbreaking figures, most of the day remains steady and light snow. In the evenings, increased ocean showers are likely to roll along the coast and for most of eastern Massachusetts. Expect a time window of 3 to 6 hours for this snow to accumulate additionally.
The last flakes fall on the Saturday before sunrise. The final print could result in another coating but shouldn’t be a problem.
Another 2-4 inches is likely due to the ocean-reinforced showers for those east of I-495. This will be the coast (from Newburyport via Cape Cod), Boston, and even parts of MetroWest.
A coating of up to 2 inches is possible for the islands and we will see the lower area from Fitchburg to Springfield.
It just looks like a snow event. Without the threat of harmful wind and coastal concerns, we should be able to deal with it!
