Morning Forecast Puts Snow Totals Closer to 3 Feet in Newton Area

A blizzard warning is in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.

OK, so that two feet of snow we were preparing to get last night?

Better add another foot to that.

The National Weather Service on Friday morning adjusted its predicted snowfall totals to "up to three feet" for the Newton area.

The timing of the snowfall is roughly the same: with light snow falling in Middlesex, Norfolk and Worcester counties Friday morning, and becoming heavy later in the afternoon and into the Friday evening commute.

The National Weather Service Blizzard Warning is still in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday. Low visibility is expected during the storm, with wind gusts up to 70 mph.

So, as WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner notes in his blog, you have a "few hours left this morning" to run some errands, but travel will deteriorate this afternoon. By 7 tonight, most towns will have 2 to 4 inches, Reiner predicted.

The storm should be the worst from 7 p.m. Friday to noon tomorrow, when snow could fall at a rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour.
