How Much Snow Will Medford Get This Weekend?
Potential snowfall locally varies according to forecasts.
It appears another major winter storm is headed to the region this weekend, but just exactly how much snow Medford will get appears to be up in the air.
Chris Lambert of WHDH said the snow is expected to start between 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday. Rain will be mixed in with snow along the coast, according to Lambert, and that will be changed over to wet snow by Sunday morning.
In places where there will only be snow, Lambert expects the snow to total about a foot.
NECN's Matt Noyes said over a foot of snow is possible for some interior communities in the storm that is expected to develop Saturday afternoon and last into Sunday afternoon.
According to his map posted Thursday, Medford appears to be in line for at least six inches of snow when all is said and done.
The National Weather Service is unsure how much snow will fall locally. They said the "threat of heavy snow is possible across much of the region."
However, NWS said the best chance for heavy, wet snow is north of the Massachusetts Turnpike away from the coast.
