After a remarkably un-snowy December, there will be snow overnight with a messy commute on Friday morning, January 18. The main event is expected to begin late Saturday evening with snow falling through Sunday.

According to a Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency warning released at 5 pm on Thursday, January 17, from 8 to 12 inches of snow, complicated by sleet and freezing rain could land in Bedford before skies clear late Sunday. MEMA notes that the storm is still 48 hours away.  As such, significant changes in the forecast are possible.  Going forward, MEMA will issue twice-daily Situational Awareness Statements, with the next one scheduled for 9:30 AM on Friday, January 18.
