More Snow to Pile up Saturday in Braintree

The storm is likely to taper off by Saturday night.

After raging through the night with wind gusts approaching 50 miles per hour and snow piling up to 20 inches or more, the blizzard that struck Braintree and the rest of Massachusetts Friday will likely continue through Saturday afternoon, adding as much as another foot of snow to the area.

Heavy snow could last until 4 p.m., with lesser precipitation continuing until 8 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will hit the low 20s Saturday, but wind chill values could dip below zero with 24 to 30 mile per hour winds. New snow accumulation of 7 to 11 inches is possible through the afternoon Saturday with a small amount in the evening – on top of the 14 to 20 inches that fell overnight.

A coastal flood warning issued by the NWS remains in effect until noon Saturday. The agency's blizzard warning lasts until 1 p.m.

The skies should clear on Sunday with temperatures getting above freezing, though moderate winds could make it feel much colder.
