Watertown will see mostly rain with some possible rain/snow mix, forecasters say.
[Updated at 6:30 p.m.] The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Middlesex County and the Watertown area as a batch of rain and snow moves its way into southern New England tonight. After some rain Wednesday, the storm is expected to hit later tonight and last through Thursday into Friday. WHDH forecasters are predicting the Boston area to get mostly rain, with a rain/snow mix just west of the city. According to snow total maps from this morning, some areas just west of Boston could get 3-6 inches of snow, depending on where the rain/snow line falls.

Watertown could see up to a foot of snow.
Once again, the snow is melting, but don't put the shovels away because, once again, the weekend will bring us more snow. A new snowstorm is headed our way for Saturday and Sunday, and Watertown 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 everywhere by Sunday morning. There may also be some coastal flooding. "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 Thursday morning, forecasts call for 8 to 12 inches of new snow in the…

The area could see around a half a foot of more snow Saturday night into Sunday.
There are still huge snowbanks everywhere from the Blizzard of '13, even after moderate temperatures this week, but Old Man Winter isn't done with the Boston area yet. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until Sunday at 1 p.m. for a storm that will pass through the area starting Saturday night. The forecast calls for 1-3 inches of snow on Saturday night and another 3-5 inches on Sunday, mainly before 4 p.m. Visibility won't be great either, as winds could gust as high as 43 mph on Sunday, blowing the snow around and producing wind chill values as low as -2 on Sunday night. The gusty winds will continue on Presidents Day, which will be sunny with a high near 32 but wind chill values as low as -4.

Several inches of snow could fall in Eastern Massachusetts from the winter storm.
[UPDATE: Jan. 21, 4:42 p.m.] That snow is expected to begin as flurries early Monday evening and cause a bit of a headache come Tuesday morning's commute. The bulk of the snow is expected along the coasts, with the Cape and coastal New Hampshire predicted to receive 5 or more inches, according to the WHDH weather blog. The western suburbs fall in the area predicted to receive 2-3 inches, but Boston is on the border of the 2-3 and 3-5 inch lines. Most of the snow is expected to fall late tonight through Tuesday mid-day. Along with the snow, according to WHDH, will come arctic air that is expected to stick around throughout the coming week. [UPDATE: Jan 21, 8:17 a.m.] Forecasters say the snow will start hitting the coast about 5 p.m. Monday…
