Boston area may get up to 4 inches of snow this weekend

Much of Eastern Massachusetts will likely be blanketed by up to 4 inches of snow from a cold front swinging south this weekend, the National Weather Service said.

Greater Boston saw a high of 47 today, accompanied by clear skies and a southwest wind gusting up to 26 miles per hour. But a Canadian low is forecast to move south overnight, creating conditions for rain and snow into Saturday, said weather service meteorologist Charlie Foley.
