With snow likely again this weekend in New England, Milton residents are likely wondering what the impact will be.
Though The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the region, the South Shore is expected to get more of a wintery mix than high snow totals. As of Friday morning, snowfall predictions for the Milton area top out around 6 inches.
West and north of Boston will probably get greater snowfall with some forecasters calling for up to 14 inches of wet snow.
Here is a look at the snowfall estimates for Milton as of 9 a.m. Friday:
- Channel 4: 4 to 6 inches mixed rain and snow
- Channel 5: 3 to 6 inches
- Channel 7: 3 to 6 inchesNECN: 3 inches

Storm start-up still looks like Saturday afternoon. We'll still be able to get around and the amounts will be light through midnight - in fact, we may even mix from Boston to the South Shore. (Cape sees rain.)
After midnight, the storm will get a little meatier. Snow intensity will increase into Sunday morning.
Heavy snow through Sunday morning.
Tapering to flurries by mid afternoon on Sunday
There is a lot of water being thrown around in the atmosphere, and with marginally cold temps, this will result in a heavy, wet snow in many spots. Even in Worcester county, it will make for good snowballs and snowpeople. On the South Shore, it will cake to the trees and power lines - so there might be more power outages.
