Snowfall Predictions Vary Largely for Friday Storm

It's going to snow this weekend, but how much will we get?

Snowfall Predictions Vary Largely for Friday Storm

The state and national news networks all agree on one thing, there is a storm coming to town for Friday and Saturday.

What they don't agree on is how much snowfall you're going to see. As of 11 p.m. Tuesday night, estimates range from 3 inches to nearly 2 feet.

The National Weather Service's (NWS) forecast for Stoneham currently calls for 14 to 18 inches of snow in the area (see attached photo of map).

The NWS forecast said as of mid-day Wednesday that Stoneham will see snow before noon on Friday, then rain and snow between noon and 1 p.m., then rain after 1 p.m. before becoming all snow after 9 p.m. Saturday, Stoneham will see a chance of snow before 11 a.m. before a partly sunny rest of the day, according to the NWS.

The Weather Channel said the storm will likely peak Friday night around 10 p.m. They are focusing on two very different possibilities, one that could dump  nearly 2 feet in the Boston area, the other showing less than 3 inches.

Fox25 is keeping their estimate in the middle. "The heaviest snow band  could produce over a foot of snow here.”

ABC affiliate WCVB is updating their website as the storm gets closer. The newest information they have in their website is showing around  8 inches across the area by 8 p.m. Friday, although the storm will continue will after.

Do you want the two feet across the area or are you hoping for another miss? Tell us in the comments.
