Inches or feet?
The state and national news networks all agree on one thing: There's a storm coming to town Friday and Saturday.
What they don't agree on is how much snowfall we're going to see. The National Weather Service's seven-day forecast , checked Wednesday morning, says Somerville will get snow and rain starting Thursday night and that it will continue into Saturday morning.
The forecast predicts one half to three-quarters of an inch of snow Friday and one to two inches Friday night.
However, a winter storm watch issued Wednesday morning says, "There is moderate confidence that 6 inches or more of snowfall is possible." A hazardous weather outlook says strong and gusty winds are also likely.
Meanwhile, the WHDH forecast says, "Storm totals approach 1 foot in many areas including Boston."
WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner wrote Wednesday morning , "It's actually two storms that will join forces to become one storm ... if they join forces too late (well southeast of New England) then it will be a storm with much less snowfall ... Until we can pinpoint the storm track then the amount of snow is not locked in and that dreaded rain/snow line is also not known."
You'll want to keep your eye on the weather over the next day to follow predictions.
