Blizzard Forecast For Holliston and Hopkinton

We could see two feet of snow.

If you've been talking about what a calm winter we've had, you've spoken too soon.

Just a couple days after the 35th anniversary of the Blizzard of '78, New England is expected to get a blizzard this weekend. Middlesex County, including Holliston and Hopkinton, could see 2 feet of snow, the largest snow accumulation since 2010.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for Friday morning through Saturday afternoon.

We could see snow falling at 3-to-4 inches per hour and wind gusts of more than 20 miles per hour. Light snow is expected to develop Friday morning, becoming heavy in the afternoon: with final accumulation of 18 to 24 inches by Saturday afternoon.

“I think it's time to prepare for the biggest storm since December 26th and 27th of 2010,” WHDH-TV chief meteorologist Pete Bouchard writes in his latest blog post. “For the snow hounds, your ship might have finally come in.”
