...HEAVY SNOW POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND...

.Low pressure will intensify as it tracks near Cape Cod on
Saturday. As it does so it will spread rain and snow across
northern New England. Rain changes to snow as colder air gets
pulled into the storm during the day Saturday, with snow making
it all the way to the coast. Significant snowfall accumulations
are expected for parts of the area. A heavy, wet snow will stick
efficiently to trees which could cause downed branches and power
outages.
