Forecasters are predicting between 6 and 12 inches of snow on Thursday and Friday.
The storm is expected to begin during the day on Thursday and may drop 2-4 inches on Thursday. The snow should stretch into Friday with multiple Boston area forecasters predicting 6-12 inches of snow by the time the storm ends on Friday.
On Monday, some forecasters were predicting the possibility of a huge storm, but as of this moment the predictions are 6-12 inches of snow.
7Weather’s Jeremie Reiner wrote that the snowfall totals will not “break records or be a blockbuster but it will impact travel on Thursday and again early Friday. It's a cold storm so there won't be any concern of rain/snow lines (even on the Cape, it's all snow). Due to arctic air, this storm will produce light & fluffy snow--easy for shoveling but easy for considerable blowing/drifting as winds will be from the northeast 15-35mph.”
He added that coastal flooding is possible on Thursday and Friday during the midday high tides.
