It's going to snow this weekend, but how much will we get?

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook in anticipation of possible snow in the middle of the week.
This winter's mostly snow-less record may come to an end this Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook yesterday in anticipation of possible snow this Wednesday for Burlington and much of eastern New England. According to the NWS, there is a possibility of snow in the region this Wednesday into Thursday as a "series of low pressure system pass south of New England." "The amount of snow will depend on the exact track of these systems and if it remains cold enough to support snow. At the very least winter weather advisories need to be issued for parts of the area." Natick Patch will carry any and all updates related to this possible snow system as more information becomes available.
