If you don’t have a shovel, you might want to get one for the snowfall predicted for Massachusetts this weekend.
The National Weather Service in Massachusetts said Friday that confidence is increasing that southern New England will experience “a moderate snow event” starting Saturday morning through early Sunday.
Forecasters have issued a winter weather advisory for the region, excluding the Cape and the Islands. The meteorologists said confidence is high that between 3 and 6 inches of snow will accumulate across most of the region, with “a low risk for isolated 7 to 8 inches” northwest of the Boston to Providence corridor.
In its Friday morning updates to the snowfall maps highlighting the expected, high end, and low end accumulation estimates, the weather service is forecasting Boston is likely to see 6 inches, but it could see an inch more on the high end and three on the low side.
