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.) …

Jim Arnold, weather specialist with Shrewsbury Emergency Management, doesn't think he's used the words "fasten your seatbelts" in a weather update more than four times in the past 25 years. On Wednesday, he did. "I think we will see blizzard conditions developing by late Friday afternoon," said Arnold. "Snow will begin around or just before dawn and should be fairly light until mid morning when it will become heavier and the wind will begin to increase. Heavy blowing and drifting snow should be our lot during the afternoon possibly reaching blizzard and occasional whiteout conditions in the late afternoon, and continuing throughout the night and into early Saturday morning." There is also the chance of seeing “thundersnow”, from embedded …

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.
