How Much Snow is Mansfield Getting This Weekend?

Weather forecasters are predicting at least two inches of snow with 10 inches possible.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the weekend. The NWS said there is a 100 percent chance snow will fall in Norton on Saturday night along with a northeast wind of 8-13mph and gusts up to 32mph. Chance of precipitation Sunday is 90 percent.

Here is a look at the snowfall estimates for Norton as of 1 p.m. Friday:

  • Channel 4: 4 to 6 inches
  • Channel 5: 3 to 6 inches
  • Channel 7: On the boarder of 3-6 inches and 6-10 inches
  • Channel 25: 2 to 4 inches

Channel 7 meteorologist Pete Bouchard wrote on his weather blog:

Storm start-up still looks like Saturday afternoon. We'll still be able to get around and the amounts will be light through midnight - in fact, we may even mix from Boston to the South Shore. (Cape sees rain.)

After midnight, the storm will get a little meatier. Snow intensity will increase into Sunday morning.

Heavy snow through Sunday morning.

Tapering to flurries by mid afternoon on Sunday

There is a lot of water being thrown around in the atmosphere, and with marginally cold temps, this will result in a heavy, wet snow in many spots. Even in Worcester county, it will make for good snowballs and snowpeople. On the South Shore, it will cake to the trees and power lines - so there might be more power outages.
