A winter storm expected to bring a foot of snow to the Midwest is making its way toward New England and will apparently arrive on Saturday night.
A National Weather Service forecast calls for some snow in the Wakefield area before 1 p.m. on Saturday before giving way to rain. On Saturday night, more snow is expected, lasting into Sunday night.
In his blog on the WHDH.com website, meteorologist Jeremy Reiner says that "6-12 (inches) seems like a good starting point."
After the storm, weather is expected to be on the side of snow removal efforts, with sunny skies and highs in the 40s expected on both Monday and Tuesday.
