The forecast calls for mostly wet snow and little accumulation in suburbs west of Boston.
Another big storm will hit the Boston area on Wednesday and Thursday, but it looks like it will be mostly rain in Eastern Massachusetts. The storm will hit Wednesday morning and last through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service forecast, but little accumulation is expected in Lexington. WHDH TV meteorologist Jeremy Reiner writes in his blog: Time to start talking about a big storm heading this way. It's the same storm that will pound the Midwest-Mid Atlantic today & tomorrow. This storm will pass close enough to New England to make it a player in our world. Still a lot of details to work out but here's what I'm thinking: *Drawn out storm....late Wednesday night right through midday Friday. The height of the storm will be …

Will Lexington get pummeled this weekend with more than a foot of snow or will it be a half-foot with rain mixed in?

Forecasters say we could get 8-12 inches of snow.
Once again, the snow is melting. But once again, don't put the shovels away: the weekend could bring more snow. A new snowstorm is headed our way for Saturday and Sunday, forecasters say, and Lexington could see up to 12 inches of new snow before it's done. On his blog, WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard is calling for light rain along the coast Saturday with snow inland and snow across the region by Sunday morning. "Heavy snow through early morning Sunday. Roads will be tough to travel, and yes, your flight will most likely be delayed or cancelled. (Although I don't run an airline, so I'll let them have the final word.)," Bouchard writes. As of now, forecasts call for 8 to 12 inches of new snow in the towns around Rte. 128.

It's not even Halloween yet, but we could have our first snowfall of the season tonight.

The NWS is expecting a 100 percent chance of precipitation Thursday—rain during the day, snow at night.
