First Snow Expected This Weekend, High Wind and Possible Flooding

One to three inches of snow is possible with strong, gusting winds that could knock down trees and power lines.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm watch for much of Massachusetts this weekend, and Boston is under a high wind and coastal flood warning.

The storm, which may stretch from Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning, could leave one to three inches of snow on the ground in the city and kick up winds as high as 47mph.

"Anticipate precipitation to change to all snow around midnight continuing into Sunday morning," the NWS said in an advisory statement on Saturday afternoon. "There is a possibility for 1 to 2 inch per hour snowfall rates at times. Snow should taper off into Sunday morning."

NWS is also predicting strong northeast winds that could knock down trees and power lines. There's a chance of thunder on Sunday morning too.
