New Englander’s brace for the biggest winter storm of the season so far taking aim at them for Saturday and Sunday. According to NBC News on Dec. 13, the fierce winter storm is threatening to dump a foot of snow or more around areas of New England. Winter storm warnings are posted for a good chunk of New England.

New Englander’s take this all in their stride, once they’ve shuffled off to the grocery stores in droves, which is what Friday in New England was all about, supplies. Big Y in Westfield, Mass had deep checkout lines on Friday morning as folks got in their supplies to ride out the predicted big storm promising snow from New York City to Boston starting Saturday.

While overcast and cold, no sign of snow hit the New England area on Friday, but this storm is leaving freezing rain and snow in its wake as it makes its way up to the northeast corner of the nation. The National Weather Service is calling this a “complex storm” as it stretches from Missouri to the northern tip of New York. The storm is bringing snow, wind and cold temperatures with the thermometer expected to hover around 20 degrees on Saturday.

Lines of people with food, batteries, candles and snow shovels started Friday for Saturday’s promised storm in New England. Along with the staples of bread, eggs and milk, a lot of comfort food was seen in shopping carts today. Staying hunkered down at home usually calls for some luxuries when it comes to food. Chips, ice cream, cakes and candy found their way into shopping carts today in front of the storm.

NECN live reports the storm should start to shed its snow late Saturday morning and continue through the day. The bulk of the snowfall is expected overnight Saturday and tapering off midday on Sunday. Predictions call for anywhere from six to 10 inches and more, depending on where you live in New England.

Western Mass up to the Vermont, New Hampshire border is expected to see the brunt of the snow fall from the storm. The Weather Channel live on Friday is predicting the snow will start around noon on Saturday with just a few inches by evening. It is Saturday night when they predict an additional five to eight inches will fall.
