SHREWSBURY, Mass. — Forecasters say a fast-moving storm will miss the Central Massachusetts area Wednesday night, but we could still be in for some snow this weekend.
"We will successfully dodge the potential snowstorm tonight as it passes harmlessly out to sea with nothing more than flurries late tonight if anything at all," stated Shrewsbury weather analyst Jim Arnold said on Wednesday morning. "Coastal Massachusetts might see as much as an inch, but even there this will be mostly a non-event."
The National Weather Service is calling for a 30 percent chance of snow Wednesday night. Highs Wednesday will be near 40 degrees, with lows near 28.
The NWS is predicting a partly-sunny Thursday, with a high near 42 and a low near 32 Thursday night.
Arnold is still warning of another storm that could bring additional snow this weekend. We may see 4 to 8 inches of accumulation between noon Saturday and early Sunday, he said.
