It appears Attleboro residents should be bracing for another weekend of snowfall. How much snow and whether there will be rain in the mixture remains uncertain. The forecast is frequently changing.
Mid-day Wednesday, the National Weather Service's website stated Attleboro should expect "heavy" snow. By Thursday morning, it no longer said that, and mentioned that rain and snow are "likely" Saturday night and that Sunday should include "rain and snow, becoming all snow after noon."
Here is what the weekend forecast is as of Thursday at 6 a.m.
Saturday - A chance of snow before 5 p.m., then rain and snow likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 38. Light northeast wind becoming east 5 mph to 10 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Saturday night - Rain and snow before 3 a.m., then snow and sleet. Low around 31. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent. New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
Sunday - Rain and snow, becoming all snow after noon. High near 37. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent.
Sunday Night - A chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent.
So, it appears snow will be happening, although you could be really optimistic and note the forecast doesn't state there is a 100 percent chance as it did for the Blizzard of '13. But you're going to have to wait to get the precise details. Stay with Attleboro Patch and we will provide them for you.
