A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. Projected snowfall amounts continue to fluctuate, but most models have the Stoughton area receiving about a half-foot of snow, if not more.
7News meteorologists are predicting Stoughton to get as much as 7 to 10 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday (Stoughton is near the boarder of the 7 to 10 inch pocket and 4 to 7 inch area).
Likewise, WBZ is predicting 6 to 10 inches.
Earlier on Friday, WCVB Channel 5 was looking at one model which had this area receiving upwards of a foot of snow, but is now projecting 4-8 inches (click here to see hour by hour details).
Stoughton, like much of the southeastern part of the state, is under a Winter Storm Warning through 7 a.m. on Sunday.
The good news is that snow removal shouldn’t be a backbreaking endeavour.
WBZ’s Todd Gutner said the snow will be “dry and fluffy for most,” though he warned that driving could be hazardous at times on Saturday.
The peak of the storm, according to WBZ, will be between 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. Sunday.
