2013 is the year of the winter that won't go away. Just when it seemed safe to plant tomatoes, or fresh herbs, or little spring flowers, back comes a blast of winter.

Milford is part of the region expected to receive at least 6 inches of snow in the storm.
A late-winter storm that is expected to arrive Monday night will drop some 6 to 10 inches of snow on the Milford area, as well as freezing rain.

The warning states: "A coastal storm will move across the southern New England coastline tonight and Tuesday and deliver a period of heavy snow followed by sleet, freezing rain and then all rain for some locations.

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 …

The area could see nearly two feet of snow.
New England is bracing for a blizzard this weekend. The Milford area could see some 2 feet of snow, the largest snow accumulation since 2010. The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for most of eastern Massachusetts including Milford, calling it a "potential historic winter storm." We could see snow falling at 3-to-4 inches per hour and wind gusts of more than 20 miles per hour. The storm is expected to make travel difficult by 2 p.m. Friday, although earlier in the day it should be just flurries and light snowfall, according to WHDH-TV meteorologist Pete Bouchard. “I think it's time to prepare for the biggest storm since December 26th and 27th of 2010,” Bouchard writes in his latest blog post. “For the snow hounds, your …

It's going to snow this weekend, but how much will we get?
The state and national news networks, and National Weather Service, all agree on one thing: there is a storm coming to town for Friday and Saturday. What they don't agree on is how much snowfall you're going to see. Estimates range from 3 inches to nearly 2 feet. A report from Jim Arnold, weather specialist with the Shrewsbury Management Agency, said the storm will likely begin Thursday and could leave 10 to 15 inches across the area. The Weather Channel said the storm will likely peak Friday night around 10 p.m. They are focusing on two very different possibilities, one that could dump nearly 2 feet in the Boston area, the other showing less than 3 inches. Fox25 is keeping their estimate in the middle. "The heaviest snow band could …
