Potential big storm on Friday: Are you gearing up?

With today’s anniversary of the Blizzard of ’78, it only seems appropriate that another big snowfall is in the forecast. The weather predictors aren’t suggesting we’ll get as much snow as we did 35 years ago, but early projections show some locations – including Southborough – may be in for more than a foot.

According to the latest from the National Weather Service, a strong low pressure system will develop out of the Mid-Atlantic coast late Thursday. Snow is expected to start falling across the region by Friday morning. It may change to rain during the afternoon, but then back to wet snow Friday night into Saturday morning.

Forecasters say the timing of the storm and its track are still in flux, but the NWS says “significant accumulations” are possible. Their latest forecast shows Southborough getting 14-18 inches.

We all know how weather reports in New England go, so tell me, are you taking this one seriously? Heading out to the store for supplies? Getting the cross country skis ready? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Sue, I was thinking of sitting out at the beach tomorrow in the 80 degree sunshine, but they tell me we might get some rain. Not much but some.
