Snowy Saturday Predicted for Region

UPDATED: 1:38 P.M.

Don't let the bare ground outside your window fool you. Winter is still here and it's about to prove that to local residents on Saturday.

There is a good chance most of Massachusetts, including Sudbury, will see accumulating snow as a low-pressure system moves up the East Coast, tracking south of New England, according to the National Weather Service.

The combination of the storm's track, along with Arctic air sinking from the north, will bring accumulating snow to the region.

Winter weather advisories will likely be needed for a large portion of Southern New England.

Early Friday afternoon the NWS predicted 2-4 inches for Saturday. But a shift in the storm's track could change the type of wintry precipitation and amounts.

As of 8:45 a.m. Friday, local meteorologists made the following predictions:

  • WHDH Ch. 7 — 1-3 inches
  • WCVB Ch. 5 — 2-4 inches
  • WBZ Ch. 4 — 2-4 inches
  • Fox Ch. 25 — 1-3 inches

Residents can also expect strong wind from the north to northwest.

Temperatures on Sunday will be bitter, with highs only in the 20s and a low in the lower teens.

Patch will provide updates on the storm should they be needed.
