Morning Forecast Puts Snow Totals Closer to 3 Feet

A blizzard warning is in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.

OK, so that two feet of snow we were preparing to get last night?

Better add another foot to that.

The National Weather Service on Friday morning adjusted its predicted snowfall totals to three feet.

The timing of the snowfall is roughly the same: light snow falling in Worcester, Middlesex and Norfolk counties Friday morning, and becoming heavy later in the afternoon and into the Friday evening commute.

So, as WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner notes in his blog, you have a "few hours left this morning" to run some errands, but travel will deteriorate this afternoon. By 7 tonight, most towns will have 2 to 4 inches, Reiner predicted.

The storm should be the worst from 7 p.m. Friday to noon tomorrow, when snow could fall at a rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour.

I went food shopping the day before yesterday and I got batteries for my flashlight, lantern and radio. I'm ready for the storm and I pray I don't lose electricity. I lived through the blizzard of 78 in Boston and I'll never forget it. The snow just kept coming and coming and coming and nothing moved for days on end. The snow was so deep the plows couldn't plow. They had to bring in bulldozers from the National Guard. We are way over do for another monster storm.
