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

- 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.
