Snowy Saturday: Winter Storm Watch Issued for Belmont

Snow in January? Don’t panic!

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Belmont and most of the western suburbs of Boston, for most of Saturday as heavy snow is expected to fall on the region.

As of 4 a.m., the NWS is predicting between 4 to 8 inches of snow with a trace of ice starting in the wee hours of Saturday, Jan. 24. The precipitation may change to rain mid-day before changing back to snow for the evening.

Belmont is likely to be on the lower end of the snow fall projections as Boston and Somerville are expecting only 3 to 5 inches due to warmer costal weather.

Because the snow will be wet, large branches and wires could be brought down.

And don’t fly your private plane as visibility will be a quarter mile or less at times.
