Whether you're dreaming of one or not, Mother Nature has plans.
According to STORMFAX, historically there is a 60 percent chance of one inch of snow on Christmas morning, a 27 percent chance of 5 inches and a 10 percent chance of 10 inches. OK, but is it going to snow this Christmas? It's hard to tell this early, but Jim Arnold, a weather specialist who works with Shrewsbury's and Worcester's Emergency Communications and Emergency Management Agencices, has some theories. "Over the long term, Central Massachusetts sees a white Christmas between 6 and 7 years out of 10," said Arnold. "From a sensible weather standpoint, I do see signs of a pattern change to one of colder and stormier weather in about 10 to 14 days. That would greatly increase the chances of a white Christmas should the new pattern …

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Holliston in anticipation of possible snow tomorrow.
This winter's mostly snow-less record may come to an end this Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook yesterday in anticipation of possible snow this Wednesday for Holliston and much of eastern New England. According to the NWS, there is a possibility of snow in the region this Wednesday into Thursday as a "series of low pressure systems pass south of New England." "The amount of snow will depend on the exact track of these systems and if it remains cold enough to support snow," said a release. "At the very least winter weather advisories need to be issued for parts of the area." Holliston Patch will carry any and all updates related to this possible snow system as more information becomes available.

A pocket of cold air is on its way to the Northeast, possibly bringing winter with it.
In coming weeks, residents used to cold, grueling New England winters may get a glimpse of the weather mother nature forgot to bring this year. Greg Postel, a weather blogger for the Washington Post, predicts a large cell of cold air will sweep across the country next week, bringing winter's last gasp with it. In a post on the Capital Weather Gang blog, Postel wrote, "In the pattern upcoming, however, ridging is forecasted to develop farther east, much closer to the Rockies... This should allow cold air to more easily reach the Northeast," Postel said. But there is still good news for those enjoying this season's atypical warmth – Postel expects the upcoming winter resurgence to be brief at the longest. "Longer-range models are …

For the second night this week, forecasters are predicting snow, but don't expect much more than an inch or two.
It looks like the biggest winter storm since October could be heading to Hopkinton tonight. A whopping two inches is being predicted by weather.com. The snow is expected to start falling around 9 p.m. tonight, so dress warm and bring a snow brush if you're planning on going to the School Committee meeting tonight. The snow will be ending tomorrow morning around 5, just in time for the morning commute. You probably won't have to shovel but it will be smart to leave some extra time to wipe off your car and get the defrost going.
