Meteorologists aren't committing yet, but a few inches of snow could fall Saturday night.
It's been nice and warm all week (well, relatively), but that's all going to change this weekend. Meteorologists from Boston TV networks all agree the temperatures are going to drop. They all also agree we will probably get some snow Saturday. They don't, however, agree how much snow. Terry Eliasen, WBZ-TV Executive Weather Producer , explained the reasons for this in his blog post last night: What do you do when the model you have trusted like your best friend, the one that guided you through the Blizzard of 2013 consistently says, “no big deal,” while several other weather models, like an annoying group of “cool kids” on the playground are screaming at you: ”We have changed our minds, there is a big storm coming this weekend, trust us…

Area weather specialist Jim Arnold gives locals an updated look at the current weather patterns.
Monday and Tuesday next week could spell snow for the region as the entire area begins to trend colder, according to Jim Arnold. Arnold is weather specialist working with the Shrewsbury Emergency Management Agency, the town of Princeton and the Worcester Emergency Communications and Emergency Management Agency. "We will be trending colder, but not to extreme values over the next few days," said Arnold. "In addition, over the next few days we are likely to see a couple small, nuisance type disturbances sandwiched around a potentially strong coastal storm, impact our area with a variety of winter type precipitation. The first of these will bring some light, nuisance value snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain to central Massachusetts, …

Whether you're dreaming of one or not, Mother Nature has plans.
According to STORMFAX, historically there is a 60 percent chance of one inch of snow on Christmas morning, a 27 percent chance of 5 inches and a 10 percent chance of 10 inches. OK, but is it going to snow this Christmas? It's hard to tell this early, but Jim Arnold, a weather specialist who works with Shrewsbury's and Worcester's Emergency Communications and Emergency Management Agencices, has some theories. "Over the long term, Central Massachusetts sees a white Christmas between 6 and 7 years out of 10," said Arnold. "From a sensible weather standpoint, I do see signs of a pattern change to one of colder and stormier weather in about 10 to 14 days. That would greatly increase the chances of a white Christmas should the new pattern …

Heaviest snowfall likely to occur Saturday morning into the afternoon.
It's becoming more apparent shovels will be needed Saturday. The bigger question is will snow blowers be needed, too? The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory Friday night for eastern Massachusetts, including Framingham, which will go into effect Saturday at 4 a.m. and last until 10 p.m. An ocean storm is expected to develop south of New England on Saturday and intensify as it passes well southeast of Nantucket. Residents can expect anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow. The heaviest snow will fall late Saturday morning into the afternoon. The snow should taper off to flurries later in the day. Motorists should take precaution, as any snow-covered roadways will become slippery, especially secondary roads and on and off …
