How Much Snow is Westwood Getting This Weekend?

Weather forecasters are predicting lower snow amounts in Westwood than in other parts of the state.

Will Westwood get pummeled this weekend with more than a foot of snow or will it be less than a half-foot with rain mixed in?

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather watch from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. The NWS said a couple of inches is possible but warned that a mixture with main could create hazardous conditions.

Therefore, it looks like Westwood will largely be spared from the storm that will hit closer to the Worcester area.

Channel 7 meteorologist Pete Bouchard wrote on his weather blog:

Storm start-up still looks like Saturday afternoon. We'll still be able to get around and the amounts will be light through midnight - in fact, we may even mix from Boston to the South Shore. (Cape sees rain.)

After midnight, the storm will get a little meatier. Snow intensity will increase into Sunday morning.

Heavy snow through Sunday morning.

Tapering to flurries by mid afternoon on Sunday.

There is a lot of water being thrown around in the atmosphere, and with marginally cold temps, this will result in a heavy, wet snow in many spots. Even in Worcester county, it will make for good snowballs and snowpeople. On the South Shore, it will cake to the trees and power lines - so there might be more power outages.
